The 2021 Festival weekend offers a number of opportunities for your students:
· The PKAF Competition, 9:00 a.m., November 6, offers more than $2000 in cash prizes and scholarships in the Junior, Senior, and Piano Ensemble divisions.  This event gives students opportunity to showcase their accomplishments at the keyboard. The experience will prove positive and valuable for their growth as they present seasoned repertoire, or a new program, preparing for bigger competitions and important performances.
· Masterclasses, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., November 5, in the excellent atmosphere of Hoag Recital Hall, are a great opportunity to work with a CSU- Pueblo faculty and enjoy the “Big Hall” acoustics, playing on our premier concert instrument.
· “Monster” Piano Concert!, 7:00 p.m., November 6, an all-piano extravaganza featuring faculty, guest artists from around the state, current CSU- Pueblo students, alumni, and friends. If you want to know more what five grand pianos can do together…...we hope to see you there.

Dear Colleagues,
It is with great excitement that we at CSU-Pueblo look forward to the nineth annual Pueblo Keyboard Arts Festival, scheduled to take place November 4-6,  2021. Combining quality musical programs with educational opportunities for young and college age pianists, we hope to provide a welcoming platform for all interested in immersing themselves in the art of keyboard playing. It is my hope that participants and audience will find this Festival serves as a source of inspiration, knowledge, and one of the many elements that lead to the growth of the "complete musician."  Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions regarding the events or if I may assist you in any way. Please find enclosed the PKAF’s Participant Application and Information & Regulations form.
