    We are pleased to invite you to hear some fragments of our studio recitals and Honor recitals.
     Most of these students study or studied music for personal enrichment, as a part of their general education while some continue their studies in college.

    We view studio recitals as "performance lessons".
    Students practice to prepare the pieces well, but we don't expect perfect performance. Their interpretations often reflect their individual abilities and understanding of the artistic content of the piece.

    We  believe that some freedom of expression allows students to build  confidence, communicate with the audience, and focus on music rather than on possible mistakes.
    In order to perform in honor recitals students must go through audition process and win in that competition.
    These videos come from family collections, so we apologize for some technical imperfections. 

This student performs at Weiss Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, in April 1999

 

This little chorus won first place in their age category at "Music in the Parks" in May 2009, and Annie, the soloist, was named the best solo of the event.

 

The students explore duet singing, focusing on voicing and balance. It is not easy to do in public performance!

 

This student, Josette, continues to study classical voice in college.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Learning how to accompany a beginner singer...

 

 

 

 

The following performers are not only very young beginner singers, (some of them are only 5!) but they perform in front of an  even younger audience.
