Louisville New Praise Festival 2018
May 12 Competition 10am
May 20 Winner's Concert 5pm
We are excited to announce the 2018 dates for the Louisville New Praise Festival! The New Praise Festival is an event held all over the world that encourages children and youth to play artful and beautiful music in praise of God while also encouraging Parents to lead their families to worship together at home.
On May 12 2018 participants will perform a single praise music piece for a panel of expert judges and receive kind and encouraging feedback on their music skills. Then on May 20 qualifying students (Honorable Mention, Bronze, Silver, or Gold prize winners) will return to perform at the winners concert for their family, friends, and the public!
Participants who register before the early bird deadline this year are given an additional opportunity to perform at an April 14 master class given by the festival's founder Dr. Johann Kim and his wife Dr. Miya Choi.
