Olympia Music Teachers Association offers three recital events each year that are open to all students of both members and non-members.
These are great opportunities for students to gain confidence playing for larger groups, and for teachers to collaborate for these fun events. There are always enough participants that each recital festival is broken into three and sometimes four recital sessions; typically 20-25 students perform in each recital session.
Sonatina Festival is the last Saturday in February. Click Forms for registration information and forms.
Pop, Jazz, Duet Festival is in the spring, in conjunction with the Musicianship Festival, usually the first Saturday in May.
The WSMTA Competition Recital determines who can perform at the state conference. It is held the weekend before the Music Artistry Program (MAP).
The OMTA Honors Recital showcases our exceptional students who participated in the WSMTA Music Artistry Program (MAP). It is held the weekend after MAP.
