2016 WINTER RECITAL:

The 2016 winter recital will be held on Sunday, December 11th at Hanover's in Pflugerville: 108 E Main St, Pflugerville, TX 78660. We will be splitting this recital into 4 different groups: 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm, 4:00 pm, & 6:00 pm. We want to remind everyone that if you need to participate in a specific recital to please inform us no later than November 20th. If you do not request a specific time we will schedule you/your child during the most ideal time slot.

Group photos will be taken at the end of each time slot, so please plan to stick around until the end of your group's recital. We have changed the length of recitals from 3 hours to 2 hours in hopes that it will be easier to do so.

If this is your first recital to attend you are in for a treat! As you know, students will work hard for weeks to prepare their performances and our students are some of the most talented, awe inspiring musicians in their time! Make sure to invite your family and friends for a relaxed day of sharing music and once in a lifetime performances. Dress attire is casual and the event is open invite.


T-SHIRT ORDERS:

We will be selling shirts again this year and as always, the front design will be a surprise and recital participants will have their names and performances listed on the back. T-shirts are available in both youth and adult sizes and cost $20 if paid for by December 1st. Please click here to order: http://outofthisworldmusicschool.com/tshirt-orders/. All online orders will be added to your next Invoice. We will have a few extra shirts to sell at the recital but sizes will be limited. Shirts that are not paid for by December 1st will cost $25.


PHOTOGRAPHER & PHOTO PACKAGES:

You want pictures of the performances but you want to be able to enjoy the show, so we will have a professional photographer on site to capture these magic moments. Photo packages will be available for purchase and proofs will be sent to each family to choose from.


COLLABORATING:

If you or your child is interested in collaborating with their peers, please reach out to us. We love to see people playing music together and do our best to pair like minded individuals. Remember, although you are limited to one song per instrument at recitals, you can play in multiple songs when collaborating!
