Kirsten Yon Masterclass
April 29

Texas Tech Professor of Violin, Kirsten Yon will be in Fredericksburg on April 29 to help students prepare solos for their individual recital and to give a concert.

A concert by Dr. Yon is scheduled at 7 p.m. All students should attend! She is a wonderful teacher and it is a rare treat to have a guest like Kirsten Yon in Fredericksburg.

Masterclass is at 4:30 p.m. at the Fredericksburg United Methodist Church. All serious students should attend. All students are welcome to participate in the group portion of the class working in which Dr. Yon will clinic the students on “Themes from Moldau.”


Individual Recital
April 30

Individual Recital will be April 30 at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church. All students will perform the solo work they will be working on.

This is a required event. There will be 2 sessions: 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Students may wear dressy clothing of your choice. No jeans, athletic shoes or t-shirts.

(Reception will follow each group. Last names beginning with A-L will bring bottled water or cookies. No messy treats, please! I need a volunteer for each hour to set up cookie table.)
