District 64 Band and Orchestra Parents Association Solo and Ensemble Information

This is a worthwhile opportunity for you to challenge yourself and grow musically by playing a solo, or performing in a small ensemble such as a duet, trio, or quartet with your friends. Solos should be chosen from the standard solo repertoire for band & orchestra. You will be assigned a specific time to perform during the Recital evening. You will receive a written evaluation of your solo/ensemble performance from a guest clinician, but this is not a competition. The emphasis is on celebrating your musical accomplishments and sharing them with family and friends. Your parents and friends are invited to attend and listen to you perform. If you do not yet study privately, this would be a great time to begin taking lessons.

Recital Dates
BAND: Thursday, February 16, 2016, 4:00 - 8:00 PM, Lincoln Middle School
STRINGS: Thursday, March 9, 2016, 4:00 - 8:00 PM, Lincoln Middle School
