The Master’s String Studio Recitals
We will have two recitals this year.
A recital is an excellent way to share music with others, and for your family to see what you have learned throughout the year. It also gives the student a goal to work towards as they practice their music. And it takes practice to perform. The recital is intended to give students the opportunity to bless others through their playing and to glorify the Lord by doing their very best with the skills that He has given them.
Fall recital: Friday, November 18, 2016, 4:00pm – Ridgeview Assisted Living Home, details TBA
Spring recital: Friday, May 19, 2017 – TBA
If your student is interested in orchestra and has been playing their instrument for at least one year, I highly recommend that you give it a try. Orchestra teaches teamwork and leadership, develops the musical ear, and admits musicians into the wonderful world of orchestral literature and performances. At this time, there are two local youth orchestras that students can join.
Central Minnesota Youth Orchestra
All information can be found on the website: www.cmyo.org.
There are three levels of ensembles:
Overture I – Suzuki book 1-2
Overture II – Suzuki book 2-4
Encore – Suzuki book 4 or higher
This ensemble is relatively new, but has great potential and has already started to arouse interest among students and teachers in the Central Minnesota area. I have worked with both Michael Zellgert and Rhonda Johnson, and they are excellent conductors, musicians, and teachers.
Seaborn Strings Youth Orchestra
This orchestra has four groups:
Prelude Strings – beginning string students
Crescendo Strings – students in 3rd – 6th grade or who have played for more than one year
Symphonic Strings – students in 7th – 12th grade or advanced students
Jazz/Fiddle Orchestra – students of any age who have played for more than one year
Rehearsals are on Tuesdays or Wednesdays (depending on the group) throughout the school year.
The music director is Cristina Seaborn. She is a wonderful musician and instructor with a lot of experience. I have personally worked with her for many years.
