Bravo Recital Participants!

We’re so proud of our talented students who performed in our Winter Recital! We had over 100 students perform to a packed house in almost every recital session. Next year we will be adding 4-5 additional recital sessions to accommodate the larger number of students performing!

Our next round of recitals will be held in June and they are completely FREE for parents and students. We do not charge participation fees like many schools in the area so make sure to take advantage of this great performance opportunity!

If you want to perform or would like for your child to perform in our June recitals, we will have more information and sign up sheets at the front desk starting May 1st, 2015.
