Each department holds a number of department recitals throughout the school year. These recitals are designed to provide performance opportunities to students in each department and an opportunity for students to interact with and hear other students performing on the same instrument.
Many teachers host recitals for the students in their studio once or twice each year. These recitals are a wonderful opportunity for students to perform with their peers in the same instrument area. It’s also a great chance to get to know some of the other students that study with your teacher. Check with your teacher for dates and times.
