More than 600 students, ranging in age from kindergarten through college, will compete within their respective grade levels for top honors in voice, piano, all instruments and chamber music.
Winners from the Missouri auditions will proceed to the West Central Division Auditions, which will be held Jan. 16-18, 2009, at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn. Divisional finalists will proceed to the MTNA National Competitions, held March 28-April 1 in Atlanta, GA.
