Bach Around the Clock is next Saturday!

Bach Around the Clock is this Saturday, March 11th!  Performances will take place at St. Andrews Episcopal Church (1833 Regent Street).  Violins will perform at 10:30AM and Cellos perform at 1:30PM.  Please arrive 30 minutes before your performance time.  Dress is SSM t-shirts and black pants/skirts/leggings.  Cellists, please remember your endpin straps!  Erika Sterli created a handy review sheet for Bach Around the Clock–click here.

On Tuesday, March 21st we’ll be gathering at MyArts from 5:30-6:30 to hold a special sharing event.  Each class will share a selection from a black or female composer.  Music and Movement and pre-twinkle violin and cello classes will still be held that day.

The Final Forte concert at Overture Center is this Wednesday the 8th at 7pm.  The Final Forte features four Wisconsin high school students who have made it to the final round of the annual Bolz Young Artist Competition.  They will be playing with the Madison Symphony Orchestra.
