To help encourage and promote musical education in the lives of our youth today, The Studio Connection recently participated in the Ohio Federation of Music Clubs (OFMC) District IV-A Festival at Heidelberg University on Saturday, March 1. OFMC is a statewide organization that is devoted to the love and encouragement of music in Ohio, offering music students an opportunity to develop and maintain high musical standards through performance, as well as earn scholarships. Participants are required to play two memorized solos for the Piano Solo Event and one memorized solo with accompanist for the Piano Concerto Event. Both are evaluated by two judges and rated for points. Students can then earn gold cup trophies with accumulated points.
Participating students in Piano Solo event: Kieryn Black, Rhys Black, Lydia Brunner, Ben Burton, Amelia Fletcher, Lilith Fletcher, Nathan Hershberger, John Johnston, Mary Kettinger, Lili Manea, Esther Nixon, Hudson Pendleton, Solanna Riddle, Paige Suelzer, Isabel VanderEnde, Hannah Wagner.
