2014 Bunny Just Piano Festival 



Dr. Charles Asche works with a student during the 2012 Festival. Asche is a member of the Piano Faculty at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
The Department of Music announces the Bunny Just Piano Festival taking place February 20 - 23, 2014 at Minnesota State Mankato.


The Bunny Just Piano Festival was created with a dual mission: to provide an outstanding training opportunity for aspiring young pianists and to offer a showcase of piano performances with distinguished artists and promising young talents alike. Participants perform for a world-class instructor in a warm, nurturing, educational environment. The four-day festival is an excellent opportunity for music enthusiasts, teachers, and students to gather and experience fine piano performance.

Three students will be awarded for their efforts. Cash awards are $500 for First Place, $300 for Second Place, and $100 for Third Place. Participants will be judged and rated by this year’s clinician, Dr. Gregory Partain.

During his 24 years on the concert stage, Partain has performed throughout the United States and overseas in Germany, Poland, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Russia, and Greece. His wide-ranging repertoire spans the seventeenth to twenty-first centuries. A frequent competition adjudicator and master class teacher, Partain taught eight summers for the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts and Governor’s Scholars Program.
