Performance Opportunities

Opportunities to perform in recitals are available. School recitals are held each term and are grouped according to instrument. Students will perform in Buik Recital Hall at a date and time selected by each instructor. Instructors will provide additional information to their students specific to the recital planned for their instrument.
