The Spring Semester is well underway, and one of the events we look forward to this spring is the Virtuoso Club’s Festival on the weekend of April 13-14 at St. Charles Community College.
The Virtuoso Club is a St. Louis-based chapter of the National Federation of Music Clubs, and holds events and provides opportunities for young musicians in the St. Louis area throughout the year. Their Festival is their annual highlight, with a variety of events and performances throughout the weekend.
At the Festival, students ages 7 and up have the opportunity to play their selected pieces for a judge, receive feedback on their playing, earn points towards prizes, win the opportunity to be featured on a recital, and even compete for college scholarships. Kirby and I can help you figure out what pieces would be best to prepare, and help you work toward this goal.
Registration is $27 per student, and your entry must be submitted by your teacher no later than February 14. So, if you’re interested, please let Kirby or I know as soon as possible so we can work out the details with you and make sure everything is in order. We’ll try to ask each of you individually in lessons, as well. I think it’s great to take these kinds of opportunity to perform “under pressure,” but in an environment that is very intentionally student-friendly and positive. We look forward to having you join us this year!
