Our annual Spring Recital will be held at Friendship Village in Schaumburg on June 3rd, 7pm. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for details!
Please let me know your spring break schedules by our March 6-7 lessons.
Please be thinking ahead to auditions! Schaumburg Youth Orchestra holds theirs throughout May, while Elgin‘s are usually the week after Memorial Day. Some of you also have school auditions coming up. If we haven’t planned your repertoire yet, please talk with me about it at our next lesson.
Finally, just a reminder to take advantage of all the fantastic concerts in our area! You don’t have to go downtown and pay a lot of money to hear a good one (though I highly recommend both the CSO and the Lyric Opera and love attending both when I can!) We have local orchestras all around. Elgin hosts its own professional orchestra. Our youth orchestras put on their own excellent concerts as do our schools. Get out when you can and enjoy the music!
Hi all–just a couple quick things.
- I am tentatively planning our recital date to be Friday night, June 5. I will be setting up the venue soon, so please let me know if for any reason that date does NOT work for you. Also, I would love your opinions on which you prefer–a more formal venue (a la Friendship Village) or a more relaxed venue that we can do a reception (like last year). It’ll depend what’s available, of course, but I’d love to know what you guys value as I set it up.
- Many of the students are accumulating a lot of Music Points from their practice 🙂 Just a reminder, if you want to redeem Music Points, please let me know in the lesson so we can count off how many you have, and then please email me if you don’t mind so I remember to send you the credit! Often when I go home it’s into the bedtime whirlwind and I try to get back to my teaching notes in a timely fashion, but sometimes I forget…as some of you know…so please do not ever feel bad reminding me 🙂
- Related to that, there is now a Music Picks page up on the sidebar with a ton of ideas for great music you can choose with your points. You are not limited to what’s there but there is a ton of good stuff there if you need any ideas!
Thanks so much–a wonderful weekend to you all!
