Performance Opportunities

STRINGS

The Preucil School schedules a wide array of recital and concerts each year, many based on achievement of a Suzuki curriculum landmark. These opportunities allow the performer to master performance requirements, gain confidence and motivate fellow students and audience members.

School Recitals

Each student performs annually in a formal recital held in the School’s Auditorium. Parents can accustom their children to the recital procedure and demonstrate the importance of these events by attending several recitals throughout the year. Motivation is increased as children find role models through attending special recitals by advanced students or graduates. Each recital is followed by a reception in Bogen Assembly Hall, where parents of performers provide cookies and punch and two parents serve as hosts.

Optional Graduation Recitals

An optional graduation recital, celebrating the completion of a Suzuki book, can be a landmark in a child’s musical development. As students finish each piece in the Suzuki books, review continues as the next pieces are learned. Upon completion of a book, students can perform the entire book at a recital for family and friends, either in our auditorium or at their home. Parents serve refreshments and a graduation certificate is presented.

Solo Recitals

Advanced students may be invited by their teacher to present solo recitals in our auditorium. Parents assume the responsibility of publicity and hospitality.

String Concert

The Annual String Concert gives all string students the special experience of taking part in an inspiring and motivating performance.

Concerts

Usually free, concerts are scheduled at the Preucil School by visiting performers, alumni, and faculty. All students are encouraged to attend.
