Students should select work of JS Bach, his sons, and/or contemporaries. Easier arrangements of Baroque works are also allowed (and encouraged!). Sign up for a slot in our lobby!

This year's festival judges are Vikkie Holland, Jack LangdonRachel Brown, Caroline Pittman, Sheila Hanford, and Jennifer McCabe.

Then, enjoy performances by Musical Offering teachers at our faculty recital on March 16. Tickets are available here.
