Students can win a piano
One lucky aspiring pianist will be lugging home a new piano in March, as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Red Deer College Arts Centre. All piano students in Central Alberta between the ages of eight and 17 are eligible to win the Suzuki HG 425e digital grand piano. To enter, students will need to complete an application package by Feb. 15. The package must include a statement describing why you deserve to win, a recording of you playing two works, a letter from your piano teacher and a parental consent form. Five finalists will be selected and invited to the Arts Centre on March 24 to attend the RDC music department’s year-end show, where the final winner will be drawn.
