OMEA Solo and Ensemble

Solo and Ensemble is almost here!  For high school students it will be held at Brunswick High School on Saturday, February 16th, 2013.  All of my students who have been working on a solo will need to set up two rehearsals with their accompanist before the contest.

The middle school Solo and Ensemble will be later in April so now is a great time to be looking at pieces that you may want to perform.

Upcoming Concerts

Every year I would like to take a few of my students to some local, professional concerts (and they’re free!).  Here is what’s planned so far:

Friday November 30th, 2012, 8pm – The Cavani String Quartet performs at Cleveland Institute of Music with guest artist Roger Tapping.

Friday February 1st, 2013, 8pm – A Faculty Piano Trio Performs at Cleveland Institute of Music.
