Participation in recitals gives our students a great opportunity to perform publicly in front of a friendly and welcoming audience.

Teachers who want their students to participate in the recitals, please keep in mind the following guidelines:

  • Pieces have to be memorized and well prepared.

  • There are no official time limits for teachers or students; however, please be considerate of your colleagues and do not send to one event ten participants with ten minutes of music each.

  • The registration fee is $20 per student for in-person recitals. Important: payment must be made in the form of one single check from the participating teacher. Checks from individual parents will not be accepted. Make checks out to “CSMTA Fairfield Chapter” and send them to the address of the event chairperson. (If needed, the chair can supply their address when you email them your students’ information.)

  • The participant information should always be e-mailed before the deadline and should include the following:

  1. name and age of student

  2. name of the piece and the composer

  3. exact length of each piece (crucial for programming)

 

Please note that no program changes can be accommodated after the deadline; however, we still request that you let us know if it turns out that your student cannot make the event. If you have any questions, please address them to the chair of that particular recital.
