Mt. Vernon School of Music holds impressive “Holiday Recital”
The community room at the Mount Vernon Public Library was packed to capacity on Saturday, December 10, as family members and friends were in attendance to support and enjoy the Mount Vernon School of Music’s yearly Holiday Recital.
Based on the huge crowd that attended this year’s Holiday Recital, it can only be described as indicative of the school’s phenomenal growth.
As a parent, if you are looking for fun, educational and inspiring music lessons from top-notch teachers for your kids, you don’t have to look any further. The Mount Vernon School of Music is helping students of all ages and levels learn the skills that they need to enjoy music for a lifetime.
Opening comments came from Judy Williams, the school's administrator, who thanked the many parents for having the vision to enroll their children in a school that is educating their children about the arts; teaching them how to become excellent vocalists; and also teaching them to play their favorite instruments – all in a safe environment.
The capacity crowd engaged in non-stop clapping as the young recitalists performed - all demonstrating their skills on the piano, guitar and an assortment of other instruments.
Maureen Wilson, director of the music school said, “Our goal is to help students garner a love of music-making that they will have their entire lives. Our school strives to spread the transformative power of music by providing the highest quality music education and experiences to all in the community who seek them.”
The children that performed at the recital were excited and looking forward to the Holiday Recital, since it was an excellent opportunity to proudly showcase their skills, share their musical talents with family and friends and practice performing in front of an audience.
