Pianorama 2019

Pianorama is a multi-piano ensemble event held every two years. Elementary through advanced students perform duets in one of nine groups, determined by playing level. Participating students learn how to follow a conductor while gaining valuable audition, rehearsal, and concert experience.

We would like to recognize the students who participate in Pianorama by sending write-ups to local newspapers and posting on our district website and social media pages. Please have the parent/guardian of participating students fill out this Image Usage Release Form form:



Need a partner for a student? Fill out the Pianorama Partner Request form with your student’s details. (Please fill out one form per student.) After completing the form, close your browser and click the Active Requests link from the CEOMTA page.

The Active Requests link will take you to a summary page of survey responses from other teachers. Select Individual Responses at the top of the page to view each response individually and find a good match. Then email the teacher directly to work out arrangements.

Happy partnering!
