Winter Concert 2023: January 21st
Location: Westfield Presbyterian Church, 140 Mountain Ave, Westfield, NJ 07090
inside the chapel (from the parking lot)
Start time for all musicians: 2:15 PM
String players: 1:30 PM for TUNING
(those in the second half coming late should come for tuning during the intermission)
Everyone is welcome to start arriving at 1:45 PM
Please stay for the duration of the recital: we will take photos at the beginning of intermission and at the end.
I have a photographer (my brother) who will be coming to take photos and film during the entirety of the event. I urge students to stay for the whole recital as I would like to take a student and teacher photo at intermission and at end of the recital. All photos will be provided on my Google Classroom through my Google Drive at the end of the recital: please feel free to download and print out photos as you wish!
I encourage filming, I will also be filming the concerts on my camera for those who are unable to. All of these videos will be available in the shared Google Drive. If anyone wants their performance video individually, please let me know and I can send over a clip separately via email.
Concert black is best, but I do not strictly adhere to it. Students should ideally wear clothing that is semi-formal; no sneakers, boots or open-toed shoes! Please note that the church is usually pretty warm year round. If you have any questions about this, please contact me.
For parents and students, we have to remember that this is the opportunity for our musicians to show their hard work to their families and friends, and so they deserve our respect and our attention throughout the recital. I expect that if there are to be any issues during the recital that they be resolved outside of it, and that to minimize noise, there shouldn't be any leaving or arriving at random times. If there is a need to leave during intermission, please take the time to do so there.
