During the next few weeks I will be helping students decide on what music they would like to play for our December 16th recital. This recital will be a chance for students to perform either a piece they are preparing for High School Solo/Ensemble or a piece for the holidays. I hope most of our students will participate. I will send more information about the details in about a month in an email. Please mark the date in your calendar!
