And yet, these students often don't get an opportunity to get together and play (or not; people can always just watch and enjoy the work of our other adult students).

Our popular Mini Recital series is back for another year. They are a smaller-scale performance opportunity at our school for students who wish to play before the main recital dates, or simply wish to play for a smaller audience. Performances start at noon on specific Saturdays. The dates for this year's Mini Recitals are:

  • November 29, 2014
  • December 13, 2014
  • February 28, 2015
  • April 25, 2015
  • May 23, 2015

There is no cost, as these performances are covered by our $10 annual performance fee. Feel free to play in any or all of these concerts! We look forward to hearing our students showcase their talents.

The summer is a great time for students to relax. But for our faculty, it's a great time to perform, practice and learn. We're thrilled to unveil a fun project coming very soon: an album by Joanna Chapman-Smith, to be performed by our own faculty!
