This four-day marathon of piano recitals celebrated its 27th year in 2020!  Students of WSMTA teachers perform in this unique space for family and friends, and give the general public a "taste" of what we do.

Students receive ribbons or trophies according to how many years they have participated in the event.

Fall 2020 WSMTA meetings will be held virtually via Zoom (links will be posted on this page within 24 hours of meeting).
