This past Wednesday night was the Spring Concert for my students. As is my custom, I like to do a concert “postmortem” with my students to talk about what went well, and what we could improve (myself included) for the next concert.
This year’s concert really went over well. Anecdotally, I was told that a number of parents said something along the lines of “I thought last year’s concert was good, but this one was even better.” I do think we hit the runtime just right: the concert kicked off a few minutes after 6 PM, and we wrapped up right around 7:15 PM. That’s with our dance classes performing in the middle of the program.
We split the concert into three parts: an opening section with Middle School Music and a couple of solos; the dance classes performing six pieces; and a closing section with my High School Music Ensemble (and a few more solos).
With that, here is a breakdown of the two musical portions.
