“Impressive, Fast-rising soprano” and Our Own Impressive Tenor

I received word from Mrs. Catherine Hayden, producer of the Hayden’s Ferry Chamber Music Series, about soprano Julia Bullock‘s  performance on March 18, Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm in the Gallery at the Tempe Center for the Arts.   (The link takes you to a 2-minute video of Ms. Bullock’s performance with the London Symphony.)

This concert of course meets the requirements for concert review in the music classes, as do all of the concerts in the Hayden’s Ferry series.

Ms. Bullock has won Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Naumberg International Vocal Auditions, Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award and many others.

A reminder that student tickets are $10 and accompanying adults pay the reduced season ticket price of $24 by quoting  “Charter” when they buy their tickets at the TCA Box Office on 480-350-2822.  As usual, there is a reception following to meet Julia and John.

Now, about our own tenor: congratulations to Eric Johnson for placing 8th chair in All State Choir!  Your school is proud of you, Eric!  The All State Choir performance is on April 21 at University of Arizona in Tucson and also meets the requirements for concert review for TPA’s music classes.

Tech Rehearsal Permission Slip

Parents of 7th and 8th grade music students, please complete the online permission slip in order to allow your student to participate in the required tech rehearsal at the Davidson Center across the street from TPA.   Students who don’t have permission slips will not be allowed to participate in the rehearsal.

The form requires less than five minutes to complete.

The tech rehearsal is during morning school hours on Tuesday, March 20.  It is required because during the rehearsal we determine where students will be standing and moving to perform for the concert that night.  With between 60 and 70 7th or 8th graders on stage at one time, we need to practice!

Students wear their regular TPA uniforms for the tech rehearsal.  Concert attire is required for the performance that night.  For details, please see the TPA online calendar.
