Please note the following announcements:
1-) May 1st, 2010 Performances:
I have uploaded Saturday's music on the ACMA Performances
page. Congratulations to all who performed, and as always, many thanks to our supportive, enthusiastic audience!
2-) Next ACMA Recital- Performance Opportunities:
There are no available performance slots for our June 5th, 2010 recital.
3-) October "non-classical" recital:
In October, we're going to experiment with a concept suggested by several ACMA members: a free-form "non-classical" recital. This recital will take place on Saturday, October 16th 2010.
Any type of non-classical music is allowed...jazz, country, bossa nova- you name it! However, the following guidelines will apply:
-All performances should remain within the limits of good taste. Setting instruments on fire (even your own) will not be tolerated.
-The maximum time limit for each performance is 5 minutes.
-Performers can only play/sing once. If additional slots are available, we may open up the program to allow more songs.
If you would like to perform at this recital, please send me the following as soon as possible:
-Piece title/ composer
-Performer names (if an ensemble collaboration)
-Instruments used (e.g. guitar, harp)
-Approximate time (in minutes)
4-) "They Came to Play" Screenings- Amateur Classical Musician Documentary:
They Came to Play is an uplifting, feature-length documentary chronicling the passion, pressures and potential surrounding the International Piano Competition
for Outstanding Amateurs hosted by The Van Cliburn Foundation, a prestigious event which reunites seventy-five of the world?s best amateur pianists with their
dreams, if only for a brief time.
