CYM’s Annual Ensemble Recital

Ensemble Recital

Our annual Fall Ensemble Recital was a grand success! The students performed with polish and poise! Our faculty took part by performing two beautiful arrangements by Mr Chris. Ms Simmi spoke on the importance of piano ensembles, and Ms Amy reminded us of the dramatic effect of early childhood music study. Awards were presented for the practice challenge!

It was great for so many of us to be together in one big celebration of music, accomplishments, food, and fun!

We heard so many wonderful piano duets!

The piano trio was truly a highlight of the program!
