Held March 20-23, 2019 in downtown Tampa, students attend the state competition either to compete in individual pieces or to watch others compete. Buchholz can bring six pieces to state, but anyone can come on the trip. It’s a fun event with great performances.
There are also performance and acting workshops, mainstage performances, scholarship auditions and more.
The typical cost is $600—this includes lodging and fees for a 5-day, 4-night competition (meals are not included). State payment due dates and ESTIMATED payments are as follows:
Estimated: First payment, due Dec. 3: $140, Second payment, due Jan. 1: $230; Third payment, due Feb. 1: $230
