Winter Recital / October Newsletter

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 by Michael Garcia | Recital Information

Good afternoon, we hope you are all off to a great week!  

We are excited to announce that we have an official date for our 2015 Winter Recital! 

This recital will be held on Saturday, December 12th at Hanover's in Pflugerville: 108 E Main St, Pflugerville, TX 78660.  We will be splitting this recital into 3 different groups:  1:00 pm3:30 pm, & 6:00 pm.  If you have a specific scheduling need please let us know ahead of time so we can make that happen.  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.  The grille will be open all day for the event.

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.

 

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!

 

T-SHIRTS:

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.
