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, masterclasses, "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.
The Academy of Music presents an Honors Recitals each year in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel. Participants are nominated by their teachers; finalists are chosen by audition, playing before two judges. A reception in their honor immediately follows the recital. The Honors Recital is free and open to the public.
