Calling All Music Students!
• Are you looking for ways to put those
private lessons to good use?
• Do you want to make new friends who share
the same passion for music as you do?
• Do you want to learn more about the
art of playing in an ensemble?
If you said YES to these questions...
then The School of Performing Arts Youth Musicians
is the perfect opportunity for YOU!
The School of Performing Arts Youth Musicians is designed for students of late elementary through advanced playing levels. Weekly one hour rehearsals focus on rhythmic and listening skills, intonation, technique, and ensemble performance skills. Ensembles take part in public performances and local community events throughout the Chicagoland area during the holiday, spring, and summer months. Members are required to attend all rehearsals and performances September through June. Please consider this time commitment before auditioning or rejoining the group.
Rehearsals will take place on a weekly basis. A schedule will be formulated depending on the availability of each group. Returning ensemble members are automatically accepted into the program for the following year. New members must attend a placement audition.
Current events now under consideration include performances at Naper Settlement, Dupage Children's Museum, Navy Pier, and Chicago's Daley Plaza.
Audition Dates for the 2011-2012 season will take place on Friday, August 5 from 11am to 2pm. Please call 630.717.6622 for further information or to schedule an audition appointment.
