Studio Event Calendar 2017-18
(updated when new events are added or edited)
First day of Academic Session lessons: September 5
*Kitsap Young Musicians Festival: Saturday, November 4, Central Kitsap Presbyterian Church
Mrs. Melin is unable to attend; therefore, suggested only for piano students and intermediate/advanced string students with personal accompanist
*Fall Studio Recital: Saturday, November 18, 2:00pm, North Kitsap Baptist Church
Because the KYMF (above) will not be an option for most students, a full studio recital is planned this fall.
December Carols and Cookies Play-Down: Tuesday, December 12, 7pm, North Kitsap Baptist Church
This is a full-studio, holiday event! Instead of meeting in small groups for ensemble practice, all students will prepare holiday music for a group at their ability level, and we’ll combine for a Play-Down from most to least difficult music. At each level of music, more students will join the ensemble, until at the end all the students will be playing at the same time. Bring holiday treats to share!
Christmas/New Year Break: December 18-January 1
February Studio Performance Party: Saturday February 10, 2-3pm
