This is an adjudication festival. Individual keyboardists will meet with an adjudicator to perform the required skills for the level in which the participant entered. The purpose of the Keyboard Festival is to inspire, motivate, encourage, and nurture pianists, organists, and keyboard players, for the privilege of serving in the music ministry of the local church. The Keyboard Festival encourages training of keyboardists with the necessary skills of hymn playing, sight-reading, solo playing, playing accompaniments, improvisation, modulation, transposition, and accompanying congregational singing. It will challenge individuals to play service music with a higher degree of accuracy, ability, and integrity. Requirements for each level are found in the Handbook which is available online.
