Teachers are encouraged to apply their students for the Concerto Competition to be held early January. The dates and the venue for the Gertrude Brown Memorial Concerto Competition, for this year, are changed to address a number of concerns related to the Covid situation.
The 2020-2021 competition will be held in-person at Piano Craft (211 Perry Pkwy #2, Gaithersburg, MD 20877) over two Sundays, January 10 and January 17. Allocation of Divisions over the two days depends on the number of enrollments, so participants should be aware that they may compete on either date. Every effort will be made to hold winners' concerts in-person, most likely to be held at a later time when it is safe to present the concerts.
In order to minimize risk, however, the competition will not be open to the public. Also, there will be no rehearsals nor use of practice rooms this year. Everyone is expected to wear masks and to honor social distancing practices. We will do our best to make winners’ concerts happen with an orchestra before next Summer. The competition is not open to the public.
Of course, these plans are subject to weather contingencies and government regulations that may prevail at the time of the events.
