*There is a $20/per family concert fee which covers their sheet music and ensures participation in the concert. This can be paid via cash or check and is due by June 15th. Fee is waived for MusicLink Students*
BRING YOUR SHEET MUSIC.
The venue is handicap accessible.
We will have refreshments and activities for everyone to participate in throughout the show. This year, we are encouraging everyone to hang out and have fun!
Parking: You can park in the parking lot in front of the Big Top.
See the attached flyer to share with friends and family. There is also an event created on our Facebook page. Friends and family who are not able to attend can watch the event on Facebook as we will be live during the show.
You can expect each show to be about an hour long. I encourage everyone to stay for the entire show. There is nothing more disappointing than being the last performer and realizing that half the audience has left. We will also have some things to hand out at the end, exciting announcements, and we will do a group photo as well. If you do have to leave, please do so discreetly. KiddyKeys students will be performing first so that you can leave early if you need to. Rock bands are performing after the recitals which are expected to last about an hour.
We will be taking two weeks off after the concert. Per the policy, these lessons will be made up prior to the concert in our Concert Prep Masterclasses and tuition remains the same. Concert Prep Masterclasses address any fears, concert etiquette, and to prepare students for everything that will happen so that there are no surprises.
2) Pre-Recital Information
Concerts are encouraged but not mandatory. If your child does not know their song by July 6th, they will not be participating in the concert. Concert Prep Masterclasses will be at the school (2726 Amherst Ave Spc C) on June 29th and they are an hour long. These classes are included with your tuition. You only need to register for one.
June 29th: 3:30pm to 4:30pm
4:30pm to 5:30pm
5:30pm to 6:30pm (this time will be opened if we need additional times)
A separate email will be sent out soon with information on how to register. Keep in mind that parking is going to be intense for these classes so dropping off and leaving is encouraged if weather permits. If your student is not performing in the concert, these classes are still beneficial.
3) Post Recital Info
Lessons will be cancelled July 13th. Lessons resume on July 27th. Per the policy, tuition remains the same and these lessons will not be rescheduled or credited.
