This year is the 11th consecutive year for the annual Cardinal Piano Festival. The festival is Jan. 28 at Conway Springs High School in the auditorium and will start at 8 a.m. This year, Senseney Music will be there and will bring gift certificates that will be awarded to as many students as possible, according to organizer Karen Lange.

The piano judge for the day will be Justine Sansanfar, an assistant professor of piano pedagogy from Wichita State University.  She will also visit with each performer after they play.

The festival is open to students from our league, home-schooled students and students from other leagues. It is open to anyone from elementary through advanced playing levels. The festival will give the pianists the opportunity to play on the Yamaha Grand Piano in the auditorium. The event is open to the public to attend.

“I will be playing ‘Fur Elise’ by Beethoven,” freshman Amy Zoglmann said. “I hope that the judge will say that I did a good job and give me some hints on how to make my playing better.”

“I was planning on going to the festival, but I found out I couldn’t because I am going on March for Life,” freshman Neal Zoglmann said. “I was going to play ‘Conquistador’ by Jenni Whitley.”
