- 1/31/2014 -
Southern University Baton Rouge's music professor Joao Casarotti has been chosen to be one of two judges to be part of an international piano evaluation committee in Taiwan this summer.
Casarotti will join the International Piano Performance Examinations Committee (IPPEC) to travel through Taiwan evaluating around 1,200 pianists, ranging from age five to 25.
Every year IPPEC selects two judges from important music institutions around the world to evaluate Taiwanese piano students and talk with students, parents, and teachers. An interpreter travels with the judges to provide a line of communication with the students and parents for assessments on the students' performances.
