SMTA Sonatina Festival
April 28th, 1:30-4:00 PM, Wedgwood Presbyterian Church
Co-Chairs: Janet Anderson and Marsha Wright
SMTA hosts a Sonatina Festival to celebrate the creative variety of this musical form. Students of all ages perform solos, duos, and in ensembles of any size and makeup. Newly composed sonatinas are most welcome! Interesting information about the piece or composer is presented to the audience by the performers. No judging or ranking, but rather a chance to perform in a less formal setting for the entire community..
The 2018 Sonatina Festival will be held on April 28th at the Wedgwood Presbyterian Church in Seattle. Please visit the Sonatina Festival Page for details and to download the mail-in registration form. Registration is from Feb. 1st to March 1st.

Teachers Performance Showcases
Partially funded by the generous gift from Dorothy Woodcock, these Showcase events will offer performance opportunities for SMTA teachers of all instruments. They will be held in a variety of Seattle-area locations from restaurants to recital venues, and will give SMTA members a chance to perform solo or in ensemble. SMTA wishes to highlight the wide range of musical genres and talents in our SMTA community of professionals.
Next showcase: Sunday, February 11th, at 5:30 p.m. featuring SMTA members at the Skylark Cafe 3803 Delridge Way SW Seattle WA 98106. Check out our poster! SMTA Showcase Skylark Cafe
