Performance represents an essential part of a student's musical growth. Students are urged to take advantage of opportunities to perform and to listen to others perform. Academy performances include departmental recitals, all-student recitals, honors recitals, faculty recitals, master classes, "informances" and numerous performances by all our ensembles during the year. Most are free or at very low admission cost and families are strongly encouraged to attend as many as possible.
