Pine Tree Music Competition

The Pine Tree Music Competition and Virtual Evaluation is a biennial event organized by MaineMTA for piano and string students of Maine.  It is a state level event that is designed to encourage Maine students to work toward their highest potential by recognizing and rewarding their excellence in musical performance.  2021 was a unique year for the competition when it both went virtual and expanded to include string students.  This year we celebrate returning to an in-person competition on May 13, 2023 at the School of Performing Arts in Orono.  New this year is a virtual evaluation option.  The planning committee has taken the 2021 virtual competition format and created a non-competitive virtual evaluation track for those students who want to work toward a goal but who may not be ready or willing to participate in a competition.
