Our Spring Recital is set!
Saturday, June 15th, 3-6pm
Greene Music on Miramar Rd.
Recital Fee is $25/solo singer; $10/group only singer. It is due at the accompaniment rehearsal or before.
Accompaniment Rehearsal: TBA, these are 10-15 minute slots a week or so before the recital, to practice with the accompanists, it is mandatory to have a rehearsal.
Dress Rehearsal (mandatory): TBA, usually during the prior weekend; there will be options given and they will take place at my home.
We appreciate having Olivia Donald as our collaborating pianist once again. I will be looking into having a guitar player for some songs as well.
We will have one group song this year. Everyone in the recital must sing in the group song. You will not be allowed to do a solo unless you prepare the group song and attend the Dress Rehearsal. If you are concerned about the time commitment or have other recitals interfering please talk to me about it before deciding it won’t be possible to sing.
If you do not want to perform a solo at the recital, the group songs are a great way to participate and not feel as nervous. Mini-solos in the group songs will be offered first to those not singing a solo in the recital itself.
The recital is a performance option for all students in the Studio. Please note that in the incentives program rules, it states that you must reach GOLD in order to participate with a solo in the recital. You can check the board in the studio to see where you rank. Adults are not generally a part of the incentives program and your readiness can be determined during your lessons.
Repertoire choices will be made by me. You should, of course, make suggestions of songs you’d like to sing, but I will be making the final decision. Our final day for deciding on a song is May 15th. By that time, we must have started the song, in some cases be memorized, and definitely must have the sheet music in hand.
Please keep in mind that there will be a dress code for performers and that any student not fulfilling this at the performance may not be allowed to perform. Also, any student who is not prepared by the time we reach the rehearsals may not be permitted to perform. I love giving this performing opportunity to my students, but I do expect them to work toward it.
