GROUP OPPORTUNITIES:

As we've done in the past, we will do our best to match up like-minded musicians to participate in group ensembles/bands at the recital.  Participation is optional, but will give students an opportunity to perform multiple songs at the recital.  As part of the experience there may be 1-3 recommended rehearsals per group where students will have an opportunity to rehearse and learn together on the weeks prior to the recital. Group rates are $15/ 30min, $20/ 45min, $25/ 1hr per person.  Some fantastic bands have been created at Out of this World Music School and it is a great way to take your music to the next level!

We will be printing t-shirts for the upcoming recital that will include a fresh new design and each performer's name on the back of the shirt.  The deadline for pre-ordering t-shirts will be November 20th so we can get everything printed.  Order forms will be going out in the next few weeks.
