Our First Annual Spring Recital was held at the Pequot Library (pictured above) on June 15th. Nearly 90 students performed in three recitals that day, and what a wonderful day of music it was!
We are so proud of all of our students, and look forward to more fun performing opportunities next school year.
Here's a sample of some great photos from that day. Click here for the full gallery!
