r By Marilyn Mitchell

The Utah Valley South Chapter of National Music Clubs of America holds an annual Honors Playoffs Piano Competition. Every spring, our group of teachers from the area stretching from Springville to Santaquin adjudicates more than 500 students who play two memorized piano solos. Students are chosen from that group to compete in the Honors Playoffs.

On Saturday, March 26, Dr. Scott Holden, chairman of keyboard studies at Brigham Young University, adjudicated 82 solos and chose our top 19 students at the Chillon Reception Center in Spanish Fork. These students performed in an Honors Recital on Monday, March 28, after which they received a ribbon and a $50 check. The winners are as follows:
