2021 Concordia Keyboard Day ONLINE
For the past six years, Concordia Keyboard Day has supported and celebrated the musical achievements of young pianists and organists from across Southern California. Due to the pandemic, our 2021 Keyboard Day will be offered primarily online, with opportunities for students and families to visit campus individually to work with members of Concordia’s award-winning music faculty or record in the new Borland-Manske Center music building.
Scholarship recipients will receive adjudication notes from our keyboard faculty, and may be awarded cash scholarships in support of their private music lessons; our average award varies from $50 to $350. Successful applicants will also be awarded a remote or in-person lesson with a Concordia music faculty member and the opportunity to record a solo performance using state-of-the-art equipment in Zhang Orchestra Hall and the Borland-Manske Center recording studio.
