Performance Opportunities

We offer our students many performing opportunities, including our twice yearly Recitals and our Performance Ensemble Program. 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.


Spring 2019 Student Performances


Drum Student Recital - May 11, 4:45 PM - Our Lady of the Brook Church, Northbrook

This is a special opportunity for our drum students to perform for their friends, families, and each other. We will have a full drum kit set up, plus a sound system so that the students can play along with recordings or other live instruments.
