What: Monthly Recitals Eligibility: Ages 10-18, pre-college Where: Graner Music Recital Hall Cost: 0 - $10 When: Friday, January 26, 2018, 4-6 PM ENTRY DEADLINE: Friday, January 5, 2018 Administrator: Margaret Pressley, email@example.com
Dear Classical Music Teachers of Colorado Springs,
My name is Margaret Pressley. As a representative of PPMTA, CSYSA and String Teachers of Colorado Springs, it gives me great pleasure to announce a newly created monthly solo recital series to begin in January 2018. Formed to serve pre-college music students, ages 10 – 18, the opportunity to perform longer works such as entire (or more than one movement) of concertos and sonatas, audition and competition programs, these recitals are meant to augment monthly studio recitals.
First Recital Date: Friday, January 26, 2018 - 4:00 – 6:00. There will be a brief intermission. Recitals will be publically attended and free to audiences. Students who perform will be required to stay for the entire recital.
Recital Site: Graner Music has graciously offered its performance hall to us on the last Friday of each month from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. In addition to the grand piano on stage, a digital piano has been donated for piano concerto accompaniment.
Student Entry Fees cover the cost of piano tuning: Pianists: $10.00 Unaccompanied Orchestral Instrumentalists: $10.00 if this is the only work played. Accompanied Instrumentalists have no fee, as they will be paying collaborative pianists.
Memorization of Concertos and Solo Pieces is required for Pianists and Strings. Sonatas must be memorized for pianists, but not for orchestral instruments.
Attached, please find an application form to be filled out and returned online to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be received and accepted on a first come/first serve basis. Composers, Titles, Movement markings and Minutes (including seconds) are required to be accepted.
The Application Deadline for January’s recital is: Friday, January 5, 2018.
We look forward to presenting this wonderful opportunity for our talented musicians to endurance train and to season in repertoire in preparation for future success!
