Performance Evaluations Chair
Risha Russon

UMTA hosts Performance Evaluations across the state in early Fall. Participation ranges from 250 to 400 musicians each year. Well-qualified judges provide insightful comments which benefit students and teachers, alike. This is not a competitive event.

Judges in each region select the top performers (20%) per age division. These participants are then invited to perform at the Honors Recitals.

UMTA teachers are encouraged to send students with polished repertoire to the regional events in all playing levels from beginning to advanced. All instruments are welcomed, including piano duets. (One piano provided at evaluations and honors recital.) The public is invited to attend the UMTA Honors Recitals at no charge. These recitals provide an excellent way to see some of the best performers within each age group from around the state.
