Piano students of the Pleines multi-media music studio of Port Washington, chose to perform in the National Guild of Student Musicians annual event. Due to the uncertainty of this pandemic time, 3 students participated, instead of the 14 who had been preparing. A virtual audition is indeed a new unknown experience; however, this became a very positive and successful experience.
