Kitsap Young Musicians Festival

The Kitsap Young Musicians Festival is a day of recitals by students from beginning to advanced levels. Students performing on any instrument are welcome, including solos, duets, and ensembles. KMTA teachers are welcome to enter students as well as non-member teachers at the non-member rate.

This year’s main festival will be held at St. Antony of Egypt Episcopal Church in Silverdale on Saturday, November 5.  We will offer six recital times from which students may choose (first-come-first-served when registration opens!) The first recital will begin at 9:00 AM, and another recital will begin every 90 minutes throughout the day.

In addition to the series of rolling recitals on Saturday, we will be offering a special recital of sacred and spiritual music on Sunday afternoon, November 6, at Port Madison Lutheran Church.

Online registration will open on Saturday, September 17th. A link to the SignUp Genius sign-ups will be made available on that date and will be distributed at the KMTA Member meeting on Friday, September 16h. TEACHERS will reserve spots for their students by time slot. Recital time slots will remain open until 60 minutes of performance time is reached and then that time slot will automatically close. Sign up early for guaranteed time slot of your student’s choice!

Registration fees are very low: only $5 per student or $25 per ensemble (six or more members). Non-members pay an additional $10 fee. Teachers will receive an invoice for their students’ registration fees after registration closes. Payment will be on Paypal.

All teachers who register students for the event are asked to help in some way with volunteer staffing during part of the festival.

Parent Permission Slip and Liability Release Forms are REQUIRED for all participating students. A link to the online form will also be available on the KMTA member page on September 17.
