(repeat of Thursday night presentation or a different presentation depending on the audience)

Free admission. Recital Hall, Colorado Mesa University Moss Performing Arts Center.
• Judges and director program. "A Laugh Affair with the Piano"
This eclectic program will feature serious and whimsical repertoire. So if you like many styles of music - classical, jazz and "Improv-mania Gone Wild" - come and enjoy our unplugged, fun-tempered pianists digging and wigging the good, the sad, and the funny.

• Winners Recital and Awards Ceremony (see notes below).
Suggested donation: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors & $5 for students; call CMU Box Office (970.248.1604) for advance tickets.
Teachers & Students Please Note
Prize winners will be announced on Saturday at approximately 4:30 PM Each First Prize and Honorable Mention winner will be asked to perform one or more selections (of the judge's choosing) at the Winners Recital on Saturday at 7:30 PM
The Winners Recital will be to HONOR the winners only - it will NOT affect the judge's prize decisions, which will have already been determined. We hope that by doing it this way students will feel a minimum of counterproductive nervous tension for this gala public performance.
IMPORTANT: Students MUST be present at the Awards Ceremony (Saturday, approx. 8:30 PM) to receive their First Prize awards, Honorable Mention prizes, and festival participation certificates.
Students not in attendance at the Winners' Recital and Awards Ceremony (or those who failed to attend the Friday program and three adjudications beyond their own) automatically forfeit their prizes, participant certificates and/or other free items that may be given out.
Rare exception: A student who cannot fulfill all requirements due to extenuating circumstances may, at the discretion of the Director, be eligible for Honorable Mention prizes only.
