Kasman won first place for her performance of Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 1 at the Alabama Music Teachers Association’s State Collegiate Piano Concerto Auditions. The auditions were held at Samford University on March 14 and winners qualified for the AMTA’s upcoming state conference in Tuscaloosa in June.
Selected by peer review, rather than faculty (as had been done in the past), the two winners were scored on content, delivery, visual aid and preparation.
Huge, craggy mountains laced with jagged icy edges. Penguins perched on frozen knolls and ridges, fur seals, crabeater seals, and others fishing amongst the floes. And massive chunks of glaciers breaking off into the sea as the warming global temperature melts away the edges of our southernmost continent.
