The Young Performers Showcase began in 1998 as an opportunity for our youth to perform before an audience and to encourage their participation in the instrumental arts. Excelling in the instrumental arts requires patience, discipline, and confidence. The YPS allows the performers an opportunity to practice these skills and display their talent in a welcoming and supportive environment.  Since inception, the Showcase has grown to over 140 performers over the past years. This year, 2018, our Showcase focus will be a Piano Exhibition.  We welcome all young pianists, throughout the state of Indiana, in all styles of piano solo repertoire.

All performers will receive a participation medal. Performers who place first, second or third, will receive monetary awards as follows:
