Honors Music Recitals – Sunday, March 17th

Student performing at Honors Recital

Posted on March 08, 2019 by Matt Geske

As part of our annual Spring Music Competition, a group of higher scoring participants has been selected to perform in one of two very special Honors Recitals, taking place on Sunday, March 17th in Harris Theatre on the Mason Fairfax campus. Come and join us for a delightful afternoon of performances!

WHAT: Spring Competition Honors Recitals 2019
WHEN: Sunday, March 17, 2019 – 1PM and 3PM
WHERE: Harris Theatre, Mason Fairfax Campus     See Map
PARKING: You can park in Lot K for free or the Mason Pond Parking Deck for $8
COST: FREE and open to the public

Over 90 Competition participants (both Academy and non-Academy music students) sent in Audition videos in January, which were then adjudicated by Mason School of Music professors, who provided scoring and comments.  The score sheets and valuable feedback commentary were given to the particpants’ music teachers to review in their next music lesson. The highest scoring participants from the four age divisions (Elementary, Middle School, High School and Adult Amateur) were then selected to perform in the recitals.

The Competition also serves as an important fundraiser. Proceeds from the application and recital fees will go to support the Academy’s scholarship and outreach programs, helping to provide access to quality arts education experiences to all members of the community.

Come and show your support for these up-and-coming musicians, and listen to a wonderful array of music styles and instrumentation!
