September 30th - Monster Concert registration deadline. $10 per song. www.usu.edu/ycpiano/monster-concert/index. Those of you who have participated in Monster Concert before know what a fun, unique experience it is for our students to play in an ensemble with 35 other kids on the Daines Concert Hall stage. It helps with rhythm, balance, listening, playing accurately, and it gives a social musical experience with peers that isn’t typical in a student’s piano studies. The music this year is so fun—a combination of classic rock hits with modern duet arrangements of Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, and other pop artists (including music from Hamilton)!
