Selected students competing in the 2017 Musicfest Northwest Festival were invited by their adjudicators to perform live in the SPR Performance Studio on May 17, 18 and 19. These broadcasts took place during Classical Music with Verne Windham, between 10 a.m. and Noon.
Students of classical music and ballet come from all over the West Coast and Inland Northwest to play for renowned adjudicators in competitive and noncompetitive capacities at Musicfest Northwest.
Students may perform in multiple classes and categories, ranging in age from elementary through young artist. While Musicfest includes a variety of music and dance divisions, KPBX limits its broadcast to the brass, flute, guitar, piano, reed, string, and voice groups.
Thanks to Peggy Smith of Musicfest Northwest, Hearn Brothers Printing, Piano Technicians Guild of Spokane, Jim Tevenan, Bill Wright, and the SPR Volunteers for helping prepare for this special broadcast!
