We hope this newsletter finds you well. Hopefully you have been able to find a moment to catch your breath between the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the holiday season that is fast approaching.
Below you'll find info on our Holiday Recital to be held on December 21st. We've also included information on our new Adult Recital Series and a special offer for our youngest students enrolled in Simply Music Rhapsody.
There are plenty of musical holiday activities happening in the community next month. We've highlighted a few of our favorites: holiday concerts by The Fairfield County Children's Choir and the Greater Bridgeport Symphony, and a Nutcracker production.
In the meantime, we hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving! A reminder that we will be closed from Thursday to Saturday, 11/22 - 11/24.
We would also like to take this time to tell you that we are so
thankful and inspired by the support of all our students, families, & teachers, who make the school such a vibrant and wonderful place to be.

If our numbers are too large for one recital, we will hold an additional session earlier that evening (time TBD).
Family members are welcome to attend this recital! Before inviting your entire extended family though, please keep in mind that space is limited in the Recital Room.
Kindly email us no later than Friday, 12/7 if your child will be performing. Be sure to indicate the total number of people attending when you RSVP.
Adult Student Recital Series
Starting in January, we will be offering the first in a series of adult student performances. These will be casual, no-pressure opportunities to perform for other adult students in our recital space.
Our first performance will be a "Happy Hour" event, where adult students will perform and then enjoy some camaraderie over a little wine and cheese. Stay tuned for more details.
