M.A.M.A. Summer Music Festival, 2014

Posted by on July 28, 2014

This summer has been a summer of dedication and hard work for many of my students as they have prepared for a performance goal of playing at the Mid America Music Association Summer Music Festival (M.A.M.A.) to be held in St. Louis, MO, from July 31 through August 3, 2014. Each student participating in the Piano Solo Division has prepared and memorized 2 piano solos – one from the MAMA required list and one of our choice. They will perform this music for an adjudicator who will assign the student a rating. A “Superior” rating is 95% of accomplished goals, or higher. Two students, Andrew Johnson and Paula Sweeny, have elected to participate, additionally, in the competitive rounds of piano performance. Please think about these young students and wish them luck as they begin their journey to St. Louis. The following list are the names of each student and the grade they will be entering in school, this fall:

  • Payton Benson – grade 2
  • Abby Bleish – grade 4
  • Olivia Cooper – grade 3
  • Sophia Gupta – grade 5
  • Soren Gupta – grade 1
  • Jasmine Henry – grade 5
  • Andrew Johnson – grade 2 – solo division and competitive
  • Elijah Lillie – grade 7
  • Elizabeth Mixon – grade 12
  • Paula Sweeny – grade 7 – solo division and competitive
  • Anna Way – grade 5
  • Sophie Whitson – grade 1
  • JT Zerbs – grade 1
