Our last Holiday Recital was a wonderful evening and our students performed very well. The cost of having recitals continues to climb however. We asked last Fall for suggestions for a venue in which to hold our recitals and asked about the possibility of charging a low “ticket” price to help cover the cost, but we didn’t hear back from anyone. This time we are seriously hoping to get some feedback on the recital issue. If we are going to have a Spring or early Summer Recital in 2018, it is time for us to begin looking at dates and venues. We have noticed that the number of people attending continues to go down with each recital, which leads us to feel that perhaps we are doing them too often. So, should we only have one recital per year as do most music schools? Or should we continue doing them on a Summer/Winter twice per year schedule? Please take a minute to answer our question regarding a 2018 Spring or Summer Recital. If you vote yes, please consider giving us some suggestions for a venue to hold the recital. Thank you everyone!
