Spring Concert

An annual concert for all students is held in May.  Outreach performances will also use these lists. 

The ensemble concert features each instrument group, each performance group and ends with a finale including all instrument groups.  Repertoire is announced and posted as soon as it is decided.  Special rehearsals are planned and posted on the calendar and announced via emails and group announcements.  The concert is free and open to the public.

Outreach Performances are held as invitations are accepted and will use the following repertoire lists.  For more about outreach performances, see here.

Your child will only play on the material that they have studied thus far at performances.  They will not be expected to know the entire list.
