Recital details May 22, 2021
Update: This recital will be held on Zoom due to the threat of rain. Please contact me if you need the link!
Where? Outdoor Pavilion at University Baptist Church, 16106 Middlebrook Dr, Houston, TX 77059 (A Zoom recital will be our backup plan in case of poor weather)
Arrive: by 9:45 to unpack, tune, and get set up. Recital begins at 10:00 am
Bring: your instrument, music if you need it, face masks for everyone in your family group, and seating for your family (camping chairs/folding chairs would be fine). The pavilion is covered by a roof and open on three sides. I will have a music stand available for any students who need it .
Wear: your Hope Violin Studio t-shirt (current or favorite past t-shirt) with either jeans or shorts, as appropriate for the weather, and a face mask covering your mouth and nose.
Accompaniment: Mrs. Chan will be available to accompany us for this recital! Rehearsals with Mrs. Chan will occur during our May 21 group class at the park near her house. If you're uncomfortable playing with Mrs. Chan, please let me know so we can make a different plan that will work better for you.
Please arrange your family's seating six feet away from other groups (if another studio family has already been within your quarantine circle, you may sit together, but please be aware of your distance from other families as you set up your chairs)
For the sake of this event and allowing everyone in attendance to feel safe, please make sure to keep your mouth and nose covered by a mask for the duration of the event. Please have your students practice performing their recital piece with a mask on, in order to get used to the feeling. If a student absolutely can't handle playing with a mask on, the performer's mask may be removed for the duration of their own performance only. I understand that there are many differing viewpoints regarding masks among the people in our studio, but let's keep the focus on our students and do our best to make sure everyone feels confident enough in our safety protocols to attend.
