Performance Opportunities for Students

Each year, Concordia Conservatory presents more than 130 performances by students and
faculty. All students from beginning to advanced levels are encouraged to experience public
performance. The satisfaction and self-confidence school-age students gain by playing in
these settings is very important to personal and musical development.

Performance Classes

The Conservatory encourages students of all levels to participate in these informal settings
in which students play for their peers, the faculty, and the Director. Faculty recommends their
individual students for upcoming performance classes. An accompanist is provided for
performance classes.

Studio Classes

This class is an excellent supplement to private study, given through group exercises. While
expanding students’ knowledge of music, the class builds confidence and motivates students
in their private study. Studio classes are held twice a year at the end of the semester for
all students.

Honors Recitals

These semi-annual recitals feature students who have demonstrated outstanding commitment
and progress during the school year, based on a teacher’s recommendation.

Year-End Recitals

Student recitals are held for family and friends at the end of the year in the Sommer Center for
the Performing Arts. Recital participation is highly recommended. Students prepare repertoire
with the approval and guidance of the teacher.

Senior Recitals

This recital offers a concentrated performance outlet for the serious music student at the end
of his/her senior year in high school. Students prepare recital repertoire and set dates with
the approval of the Executive Director.

Music & Art-on-Parade

Students and faculty play and create art throughout the day to raise funds for the
Conservatory scholarship and music outreach programs.

Outreach Concerts

Select students and faculty perform concerts throughout the year at Lawrence Hospital,
The Fountains Senior Living in Tuckahoe, Sunrise Assisted Living in Mount Vernon,
The Wartburg Adult Care Community in Mount Vernon, The Andrus Senior Center,
and concerts in association with Bronxville Chamber of Commerce.
