THINKING AHEAD !!
With the approach of Spring, I have been looking ahead to future events and would like your feedback.
First: The format of our May Meeting will be a technology workshop. Could you please email me some questions you might have about using technology in your studios? (ie. “How to upload videos to YouTube?”) We would like to pass them on to our guest speaker ahead of time.
Second: In the future, would you be interested in attending an online version of our Sharing Sessions or Workshops for teachers?
Please email me back your answers at email@example.com
Spring Fest will be held live this weekend, March 5 and 6 at Immanuel UCC Church in Shillington. We have 43 students registered for auditions. Even if you don’t have students participating, please consider supporting RMTA by attending the recital on Sunday, March 6 at Immanuel UCC. The time of the recital will be posted on Saturday night, March 5, on the website. And bring a guest!
ADULT STUDENT RECITAL
Our adult recital will be held on March 13 at Holly Altenderfer’s house:1175 Cedar Top Road, Reading PA 19607. Please contact her with any questions at 610-775-3747 or firstname.lastname@example.org
VIRTUAL STUDENT RECITALS
Another virtual recital will be posted in April. Please encourage your students to take part in this unique format. Great to share with friends and family who can’t attend a live performance.
These recitals are open to students of all ages, levels, and abilities. There is no restriction on repertoire and memory is not required, although selections should be performance ready. Teachers should view the videos before uploading.
Registration deadline: April 1 Register online
Recital posted: By April 10
News of Note
Students should be now preparing their foundation pieces and working on their portfolios for Musical Bridges. This is a nice project for students who want to enhance their musical knowledge by exploring the connection between music and other art forms. Complete information is on the website and can be downloaded.
Video submissions due: January 1- April 1
Projects due to teachers: April 1
Display of projects will be sometime in the Spring
