Every February, the Utah Valley South Chapter of the National Music Clubs of America holds a Piano Solo Festival at UVU. This group of 45 teachers who teach in the area from Springville to Nephi, adjudicate over 500 students who play two memorized piano solos. The top students are chosen from that group to participate in a competition called Honors Playoffs.

This year the honors judge was Hilary C. Demske, Associate Professor and Director of Piano Studies at Utah Valley University. She listened to 86 students and chose 18 to play at the Honors Recital on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at Salem Hills High School. Each student won a prize of $50.
