As far as Laasya 2013, we're extremely excited to bring such an established and storied classical competition to the warm south for the first time ever. As experienced organizers with an innovative competition model, you should expect nothing less than an AMAZING weekend, one that you will never forget!
February 9th, 2013. Duke University. Durham, NC. Make sure to leave enough room in your suitcase so you can carry that trophy back home!
