Performance Opportunities

We offer our students many performing opportunities, including our twice yearly Recitals and our Student Showcase Concert. We also actively facilitate our students' participation in outside performances and competitions, such as the Society of American Musicians competition, the National Association of Teachers of Singing Competitions, along with several area youth theater programs and local high school variety shows.


Fall 2019 Student Performances

Student Showcase Concert - November 17, 3:00 - 5:00 PM - Grandpa's place, Glenview

This is an opportunity for all of our students to perform pop, rock, jazz, etc. numbers along with other students and/or our faculty rhythm section. There is a $35 fee for participating in this program. Students of all disciplines may sign up and propose a song they want to perform. We then put together an ensemble of other students and/or faculty to perform that song.
