	Sorry, I left that out. Maria won the chromatic soloist - youth - 
category in 1991 and chromatic soloist - adult - in 1993.

	For those who haven't been there - The chromatic soloist contestant 
must play a required test piece - usually written especially for the 
competition (Incredibly difficult IMHO) and also play a piece of their own 
choosing. In both competitions I saw they used a piano accompanist. The 1991 
test piece titled "Pictures Of A Woman" was written by Pete Pedersen and is 
available on cassette with sheet music from F & R Farrell Co. [I don't recall 
the 1993 test piece].

P.S. Tim, thank you for the kind words.
