2020 Winter Mini-Recital

Saturday, December 19, 2020 | News

In just one day (Sunday, December 13) we enjoyed exactly 99 student performances, separated into nine different short-short groups! No cupcakes this year (a pity!) but still a wonderful day full of music-making and community. The coronavirus situation prevented us from gathering together, in person.
