I hope that you will consider joining us for Lee University's annual Piano Festival and Competition. Now in its ninth year, the Festival invites pianists of all ages to apply. Each participant is given the opportunity to perform in masterclasses and optional private lessons. Guest artists Russell Sherman, Wha Kyung Byun, Tian Ying join faculty artists Ning An and Gloria Chien for this year's event.

Auditors and teachers are also welcome to join us on the Lee University campus, located in Cleveland, TN. We are just 30 minutes from Chattanooga and the lovely foothills of the Appalachian mountains.

The Competition, which is limited to high school students, features a grand prize of $3000 in cash and the possibility of scholarship awards to study piano at the University.

Complete information can be viewed by going to the Piano Festival webpage. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2013.
