~IMTA State Piano Auditions 2017:  State Auditions will be March 11, 2017 At Wartburg College

~Repertoire List

The 2016 IMTA Repertoire List is Now Available

▪ Hard Copy $20 (IMTA members), $45 (non-members)

▪ Searchable Spreadsheet File: $10 (IMTA members only, sent via email attachment)

This edition is a completely new revision of the IMTA Repertoire List which is available in a printed version and a searchable database on Excel. Updates of new music since the 2011 printing(including the 2016 updates) have been incorporated into the main database.  This list will be THE ONLY REPERTOIRE LIST WHICH CAN BE USED FOR IMTA AUDITIONS  BEGINNING 2016-2020. 

Purchase of the repertoire list in electronic form grants members access to a searchable database; instructions for sorting and searching are included.  Use of any part of the repertoire list, or the Excel database, without purchasing the syllabus (either in printed or electronic form) is a violation of fair use and undermines the activities of the organization.  Members are reminded that lending any form of the list to other members or nonmembers who have not purchased the list does the same. 
An updated crosscheck will be available sometime late summer/early fall 2016.

Please check the website or email Pat Reuter Riddle for availability.

A separate list of all new music included in the 2016 Syllabus since the printing of the 2011 edition is available upon request from Dr. Suzanne Torkelson: suzanne.torkelson@wartburg.edu

IMTA Auditions are now open to non-members. A $50 nonmember teacher fee will be assessed if the membership is not paid for the 2014-2015 membership year. This fee can be paid anytime up to the district auditions registration deadline.

DISTRICT IMTA Auditions registration forms are available for some centers now (those with earlier audition dates). Click on "District Piano Auditions Registration Forms" to the left to find your center's registration forms. NOTE: In order to simplify the amount of information collected a Teacher Registration form will need to be filled out once per teacher. A separate Student Registration form will be completed per student as in past years. 

To contact the State Auditions chairs, Melinda Westphalen and Allison Chenoweth, you can email westphalen5@centurylink.net,  imtaauditionschair@gmail.com,  or achenoweth@westmusic.com
