June Leondar Chamber Music/Ensemble Contest

June Leondar Chamber Music/Ensemble Contest

The June Leondar Chamber Music/Ensemble Contest’s goals are to promote interest and education in original classical literature, to encourage, support and provide more opportunity for collaborative arts, and to provide additional opportunities for students to compete at the state level during the TMTA Convention. This contest serves as a preparatory level for those desiring MTNA competition, and provides opportunities for talented students not competing in Student Affiliate contests. There are three categories for the Ensemble Music Contest: piano duets/duos (classical music), duo and mixed chamber groups (classical music), and jazz/pop ensembles.
