Performing: Reward for Hard Work

by Mimi Zweig

The String Academy offers many performing opportunities for its students. There are solo recitals every other Saturday at noon, and all day long during one weekend of each semester.  Honors Recitals scheduled in January and October recognize the outstanding performances from the solo recitals. Other concerts include the Halloween Concert for all students, ensemble concerts in December, a Gala Spring Concert, and a benefit concert in May, which winds up the year. Advanced students are also encouraged to give their own recitals.

Performing is a thrill and the just reward for all the practicing. (It is no fun to perform and not be prepared.) SAW students begin their performing “careers” early on in their first group lessons. Students look forward to performing and it becomes a natural part of their musical development. These positive experiences help children develop self-esteem and confidence.
