2015 Bunny Just Piano Festival - February 19 - 22

The Department of Music announces the Bunny Just Piano Festival taking place February 19 - 22, 2015 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.

Dr. Heidi Leathwood, clinician and performer

Heidi Brende Leathwood has performed chamber music with members of the Chicago Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, and the Colorado Symphony. Since moving to Colorado in 2001, she has enjoyed working regularly with leading musicians in the Front Range area. Dr. Leathwood is currently a faculty member of the Lamont School of Music in Denver.
