MTAC Sonata/Sonatina Festival

What: This event is organized by the Temecula Valley branch of the Music Teachers Association of California. It is in recital format held at the Temecula Public Library – students perform in front of an audience and a judge. All participants receive a certificate of performance, and students scoring rating of 5 receive trophy.

When: November 10

Audition Requirement: one memorized movement of a sonata/sonatina

Who should participate: This is a good event to do if you want to gain your first audition experience! Only one piece is required, so it is very achievable. On the other hand, it is also a good event to do to keep the experienced students motivated to work hard towards a goal.
