Recital Fun

IMG_0003.JPGIMG_0002.JPGIMG_0001.JPG  Here are a few random photos from Saturday’s recital.  It was especially fun to have a parent, Jerome Gilman, join in with his kids on duets.  He’s playing with Veronica in this photo.  The other two children are Mackenzie and Kyle Thompson.  I was very pleased with how well everyone played. Thank you, everyone, for making this year’s Christmas Recital a fun event.  Happy Holidays to all, and I’ll see you back here Jan. 2nd.

Recital Notes, Schedule Notes

I hope you are all enjoying the hustle and bustle of the season.  The recital will be on Saturday morning, December 15th at 9:30 SHARP.  It will be about an hour long.  Dress for the participants is semi-formal.  Girls should wear dresses, preferably, or dressy pants.  Boys should wear nice pants, preferably not levis, and ties if possible.  In case of inclimate weather, I will post a notice on this site by 8:00am with alternate plans. 

Directions to the venue:  from the east:  take 94 west through Five Corners at Vails Gate, turn right at stoplight at intersection of Mt. Airy and 94.  Continue on Mt. Airy to “T” intersection, turn left there.  Continue on Mt. Airy, past the reservoir on your right (and left) and watch for “one way” sign on right about 1/4 mile past the reservoir.  Turn into that parking lot and you have arrived at the church. (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.)  From the west:  take 94 through Washingtonville, Salisbury Mills, and past the Metro North train station to the interesection of Mt. Airy and 94.  It is the only stoplight between Washingtonville and Five Corners.  Turn left onto Mt. Airy road to the “T”, and turn left again.  Continue on Mt. Airy, past the reservoir and watch for “one way” sign on right about 1/4 mile past the reservoir.  Turn into that parking lot and you have arrived.

Please be prompt.  The recital will begin on time.  Students should be in their places on the dais by 9:25.  I look forward to a lovely event and appreciate everyone’s participation.  As of today, all students are planning to participate.  I have not yet made a decision on whether the event will be recorded, but you are all welcome to bring video cameras or other cameras if you would like. 

No food or beverages allowed in the building, please, and also no smoking is allowed.

Thank you all so much for the support you give each student.  Performance at recital is something every participant will remember–let’s make that memory a great one!

Vacation from piano lessons begins Dec. 15th.  Lessons will resume Jan. 2, 2008.

Beginning the third week in January, I will be doing evaluations.  You should receive copies of these the first week in February. 

Have a wonderful December!
