38th Gladys P. Norris National Piano Festival


Jackson State University will celebrate the 38th Annual Gladys P. Norris National Piano Festival February 24, 2024 at the F. D. Hall Music Center on the university’s main campus. 

The Gladys P. Norris National Piano Festival is a lasting legacy of Gladys P. Norris, who cared deeply about advancing the classical piano performance talents of our students.  The festival affords them this opportunity and gives them a glimpse of ‘setting their own stage’ in the music world and the continued preparation needed in obtaining their dreams.  All festival recital competitions are $15.00 for participating students.

Registration: November 3, 2023 – January 24, 2024.
