The Spring Piano Recitals will showcase students from the SJS piano program, each of whom has prepared one or two solo pieces. Each recital on May 11 will be about one hour in length and will feature a variety of music from different periods performed by beginner through advanced-level students. The audience will be treated to compositions by some of the greats — Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin to name just a few — as well as many standards from piano literature.
In addition, students in the Beginner Class will have their first piano recital on May 15. All are welcome to attend the recitals to support the hard-working students. If you wish to hear a specific student’s performance, please email Rachel Yarborough at firstname.lastname@example.org for a full recital schedule.
