Elizabeth Hanson Recital Friday

Our own Elizabeth Hanson, who directs TPA Winds, will be performing a solo recital for her degree on Friday, April 22, 5pm at the ASU School of Music in the Recital Hall. She will be performing on alto and soprano saxophones. The admission to the recital is free and it qualifies for concert reviews. Students, families, and faculty are all invited to attend.

The ASU School of Music is located at 50 E. Gammage Parkway at the intersection of Mill and 11th.  It is next to the school of education and directly across from Gammage Auditorium.  The Recital Hall (not to be confused with Katzin Concert Hall) is located on the fifth floor and is accessible by elevators in the round part of the building.  Metered parking is available if side streets are full.






Upcoming Cantamus Rehearsals

Because this is an unusual week, this little reminder hopefully will suffice to help singers and parents in Cantamus be prepared for the upcoming rehearsals.

Thursday, 7am: “Regular” Thursday rehearsal.  More work on “Sure on this Shining Night.” Touch up on Fiddler music as needed.  Review “Walkin'”

Friday, 3-5pm: Fiddler All-Cast rehearsal, Act I, in Zelman Center

Tuesday, 7am: Regular rehearsal

Also, please remember that Wednesday of next week, 3-5pm is the All-Cast rehearsal for Fiddler, Act II.  I believe the only music that Cantamus sings in Act II is “Anatevka.”

We will use Thursday’s rehearsal to plug any holes in Act I music and continue with “Anatevka.”

Please recall that all music Cantamus performs from now on will be memorized!

Rebecca Joslin Recital Thursday

Mrs. Joslin, our strings teacher for Junior Varsity Strings and the Music Director for Fiddler on the Roof, will be performing her senior violin recital at ASU on Thursday evening.  If you need a concert to review or just want to hear some beautiful music, this is for you.

Free Arizona Opera at Symphony Hall ~ This Wednesday!

News Flash!
Arizona Opera contacted Tempe Preparatory Academy with a special invitation to attend the final dress rehearsal of The Abduction from the Seraglio Wednesday, April 6.  This event is free both to TPA and to any student who wishes to attend, along with chaperons.  The performance of this classic comic opera by Mozart satisfies the requirements for a concert review for TPA 7th and 8th grade students, and will no doubt prove to be a delight to any member of the TPA community who wishes to go.

The opera, by Mozart, is sung in German with English supertitles.  For more information and a video about the production, see here. This is the opera referred to in the movie Amadeus.

  • The show starts at 7:00 and is expected to conclude around 9:00 p.m.
  • We will meet at TPA at 6:00 and a FREE bus will leave at 6:15 to take us. Students must have an adult accompany them.

If you want to go, contact Mrs. Wolfe by Sunday to reserve your place on the bus.
