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.

Our Recitals will take place on Sunday, June 9. However, due to overwhelming numbers, we will have two concerts: The first begins at 11:00 running until just after 12:00. The second concert will begin at 12:45, running until just before 2. Time slots are first come, first served, so please speak to your teacher if you have a preferred time to perform!
