Arts Education Is Thriving and Alive
For a young musician or dancer, the opportunity to do a formal recital in front of an audience can be thrilling, memorable and perhaps a little terrifying.
For budding future artists, there is perhaps no greater inspiration than to see other young people performing live.
Artists on both sides of that divide can gather on Sunday, Feb. 27, at 3 p.m. in the meeting house of the Congregational Church in Salisbury, Conn., for the 40th anniversary Student Open Recital (which returns after a one-year COVID-induced hiatus).
The artists are as young as 8 and no older than 18. There will be piano recitals, classical guitar, cello, the relatively new Salisbury School Classical Music Ensemble and the always popular five-member Salisbury School Jazz Ensemble.
The musicians are selected by their teachers.
The recital is free and open to the public. COVID safety protocols will be observed (masks and social distancing).
