In an ongoing effort to provide the best possible concert experience, we continue to refine & experiment with the bi-yearly event. After taking into consideration feedback from parents, students and staff, we are happy to announce a brand new format for Spring 2018! This time around, we’ll not only have a Bothwell Concert, but a whole extravaganza of fine music.
Concert sign-ups will be open:
Big Show / Grande Spettacolo
This is the Big Concert at the Bothwell Arts Center in Livermore, CA. It will take place on:
SUNDAY, MAY 20TH at 12PM
Rather than have 2-3 rooms of performances going on as in past years, we have decided to keep the show to just the East End (large room) so that we can experience the show as one community. In order to do this, and to (by request) reduce the concert length to an estimated 2 hours, this show will be primarily group performances, with selected solos (based on audition/teacher recommendation).
Planned group formats – placement by Teacher recommendation:
Rock/Pop/Jazz Groups (for Vocalists, Guitarists, Drummers, Bassists, Keyboardists & Horns)
String & Wind Groups (for violin, viola, cello, trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, flute, etc.)
Acoustic Guitar & Ukulele Groups
Choir/A Capella (for voice only)
Participation is open to ALL students!
Expect to be in this concert if you take lessons in VOICE, DRUMS, ELECTRIC GUITAR, BASS, and/or if your teacher is: Anna, Luna, Nick LW, Xavier, Tim M, Scott (previously, now Kevin S)
For pianists & others preparing short solo pieces, we will have a series of smaller concerts held right here at Music Time Academy in our cozy performance area. Concertina placement will be on a first-come-first-serve basis, into your teacher’s event. SPACE IS LIMITED!
Thursday, May 17th at 7:30pm – Sal & Nick D’s students
Friday, May 18th at 8pm – Judy & Ian’s students
