Festival Application Form
NFMC to ASMTA Conversion Chart
The ASMTA Repertoire Guide is up to date through 2020 for NFMC Syllabus titles. This chart is to be used for adding literature not previously listed in the ASMTA Repertoire Guide. Please refer to the Cross Listing Chart for NFMC pieces already listed in the ASMTA Repertoire Guide. ASMTA levels supersede NFMC for those. Music by MacDowell and Rachmaninoff should be used in the Romantic Section (B) of the ASMTA Guide and all other music should be used in the Contemporary Section (C) of the ASMTA Guide.
Which Regional Festival Will My Students Perform In?
At the Fall 2015 Board Meeting, ASMTA Board has approved to include all Alternates (1st, 2nd, etc.) from Levels 6-10 to participate at the State during the Conference.
1) Teachers: please renew your membership before you submit your students for the festival. Also, renew your membership now to take advantage of all the benefits and discounts that MTNA has to offer.
2) The entry fee for festival is now $20.00 (effective since Spring 2015.)
3) Please use our updated Repertoire Directory for 2016 and all future festivals. This keyword-searchable database has been launched since Spring 2015. Note that some solos might have been moved to a different category.
4) A revised Festival Application form will be made available on our website. Please use this revised form for 2016 festivals. Page numbers will no longer be required, since we will be using the online repertoire database.
5) Region Chairs: please remember to choose judges near their region to maintain a reasonable mileage expense.
*For additional questions about Festival, please contact Lisa Miller at 870-261-4208 or email@example.com
