After winning in local and regional rounds, students will perform in the State contest at the annual TMTA Convention, with top prizes obtaining monetary awards. Categories include Piano Solo, Piano Concerto, Vocal Solo, and Orchestral Instruments Solo. This event strives for performances of the highest possible ability and artistry.
