We are entering quickly into summer, and we have a lot of our summer traditions running, such as our August Kid/Teen Recital and our Pop Star Camp. But this year we are adding something new to our summer lineup that we are extremely excited about! For the first time ever, we’ll be holding our Studio M Solo Recital! Studio M has made a lot of changes since it first got started as OC Glee, and in that time, we have striven to make sure the students in our classes get a chance to have some individual vocal work. They get to choose their own song, and two times a year they get a solo recital that allows each student to shine.
What makes this performance so special? First, as opposed to our Kid-Teen Recitals, where the Studio M students sing their group songs, this one is a solo recital, where they each get their own song. It is the culmination of many months of hard work, memorization, and improvement! Second, the Studio M recital is just for them. Like our Instrumental Recital that allows our instrumental students to be highlighted, the Studio M recital allows our the students in our group classes a chance to have something just for themselves. We want them to be the focus of these recitals. Molly’s Music loves to give students performance opportunities. Being able to do something in a rehearsal is one thing, but being able to translate that to performance is a very different thing. And while we have nerves in a group, being up there by yourself is a whole different experience. Our solo recital helps our Studio M members experience and work on all aspects of their performance. We hope to see everyone at our first ever Studio M Solo Recital, held on July 23rd at 4:00pm in Costa Mesa! If you are interested in participating, please feel free to contact me at [email protected].
