Welcome to PAFE
We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing a fun and educational experience for young performers in the Greater Eastside areas of metropolitan Seattle in Washington state since 1987.
Festival 2013 is Complete
Festival Class Schedule - What did people perform in the adjudications? Who performed in the Concerts (Look for the link: "2013 Concert Schedule"), and what did they perform? Soon, we will post PDF files of the printed programs.
The Recognition Concerts were an absolute delight! Each concert presented lots of great music performed with skill and conviction by a total of more than 50 performers. In addition, almost $3,000 was given out as awards to the most outstanding performers.
When is the next festival? Our festival is always held the week after Easter. More info to come.
Where are the pictures? There are some pictures on Twitter (@PAFEMusic) and lots of pictures are on our Facebook page, with more to come.
Winners for each division are listed on the Festival Division pages (Festival 2013 > Piano Division, etc.). Please Contact Us if you have a certificate that indicates something other than what is listed for the winners.
Because of a computer crash, our system did not send out announcements of winners in each class this year. We did, however, try to announce them on Twitter.com (@PAFEMusic). We also posted and will continue to post pictures and fun facts on both Twitter.com and our Facebook page
Concerto Playoff Winners
What a wonderful playoff concert! In spite of the 8-minute limitation on performance times, several of the performers were able to finish before their time was up. 1st Place winner Stone Cao was not able to finish the whole movement, but his performance infected us all with a hunger for more of the Emperor Concerto. 2nd Place winner Mira Yamamoto brilliantly raced the last section of the Sarasate Carmen Fantasy faster and faster to finish in time. 3rd Place winner Evan Johanson easily finished the Conus Concerto on time to rousing applause.
Lost and Found
We found a handheld GPS navigation device. Contact Us to get it back.
