2019 Young Musicians Festival @ Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities
Feb 23 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

YOUNG MUSICIANS FESTIVAL TO BE HELD FEBRUARY 23 AND 24

The Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities is pleased to announce the 2019 Young Musicians Festival, on Saturday and Sunday, February 23 & 24! 

The Festival provides an opportunity for music students in grades four through twelve, from the counties of Cumberland, Hoke, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Richmond, and Scotland, to perform before credentialed adjudicators from North Carolina schools of music.

Adjudicators this year are Pamela Howland, piano, formerly at Wake Forest University, and David Heid, collaborative pianist at Duke University.

As a long-time educator, Howland has held numerous faculty positions in New York, Minnesota, and North Carolina. She received the Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance and Literature at the Eastman School of Music. In 2014 she left Wake Forest University to pursue international performing opportunities and new creative projects.  She has performed from coast to coast in the United States as both soloist and chamber musician. She recently brought her Chopin meets the Beatles program to the Weymouth Classical Concerts.

Heid is a staff accompanist and teaches piano at Duke University.  He is in demand throughout the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area as a collaborative artist and has worked with many of the area’s leading organizations, including NC Opera, Durham Choral Society, NC Symphony, The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, The Fletcher Foundation, Theater in the Park, Thompson Theater Summerfest and Long Leaf Opera. With a successful career in New York City as a vocal coach/accompanist, he is also a composer, arranger, and conductor. He recently accompanied Jemeesa Yarborough, soprano, at the Weymouth Classical Concerts.

Applicants must be currently studying with a teacher in the area of performance for which they plan to audition.  Adjudicator comments are focused on building the technical and musical aspects of a student’s performance area.  The remarks also provide the student’s teacher with particular information helpful for further study.

The 2019 Festival deadline for submission of applications is Wednesday, February 13.  The application fee is $20.00. 

The completed application and a check made payable to “Friends of Weymouth”, with YMF noted in the memo area, can be sent to:  Weymouth Center, P.O. Box 939, Southern Pines, NC 28388.  Teachers will be notified by Monday, February 18, regarding student audition times. 

Questions may be directed to Festival Chair, Sue Aceves at slaceves@gmail.com

This year’s Festival is graciously sponsored by Ralph and Vivian Jacobson.  We look forward to receiving applications for the Young Musicians Festival and to having your students participate in the 2019 Festival!
