SEMSA students have teamed up to provide afternoon ensemble performances on Saturday, April 27. Starting at 2:00 and 4:00, the two recitals will feature different musicians. Playing within a small group develops specialized musical skills: listening and adjusting to other performers while playing solo on a part, shared musical interpretation, understanding multi-voice music, performing in a small group, and more. Besides this, it's a fun way to spend time with music friends! Join us to enjoy either or both performances, free of charge.
