Solo & Chamber Recital
Throughout the year, 7th and 8th grade students will continue to hone their musical skills as individuals and as an ensemble. Incorporating a solo and chamber performance piece into our End-of-the-Year Concert last year was an even bigger success than I imagined it would be; and so this year, I am adding a Solo & Chamber Recital to our concert calendar. 7th and 8th grade students will work on a solo or chamber piece during the first two trimesters and perform the piece in March.
Students’ opportunity to perform solo or chamber music at our Solo & Chamber Recital will begin at the beginning of their 7th grade year and continue through their 8th grade year.
CMEA State Solo and Ensemble Festival
In addition to our newly added Solo & Chamber Recital this school year, sometime in the near future, I will also be providing students with the opportunity to perform in the CMEA State Solo and Ensemble Festival. This is an exciting opportunity for students who have been working on a solo or chamber piece to travel, perform, and work with other professional clinicians who have fun ways to help students think differently about and improve their playing.
