Recital Season – Fall 2021

Academy for the Arts considers recital performance an essential element in the development of musical talent. The recital is also a wonderful opportunity for friends and family to celebrate what the students learn and is an affirming time for the students themselves.


COVID-19 Guidlines for In-person Recitals: 
All Fall 2021 Recitals will be in person.
As we return to in-person recitals, these protocols will be followed:

1. Masks will be worn by all faculty, staff, students*, and family members ages 5+ at all times while in the building. Please wear masks correctly, covering the nose and mouth. 
*Only wind, brass, and voice students will be permitted to remove masks for the duration of their performance. 

2. Families and friends are welcome to come support students as they perform! Please be mindful of social distancing as you find your seats. 

3. If you or anyone in your family is sick, or if you have been exposed to COVID-19, STAY HOME!


Recital Reminders:
1. Students should be dropped off at AFTA entrance at their call time.
2. Look nice! Just like an interview or school presentation, avoid wearing tennis shoes, flip flops, jeans, t-shirts, etc.
3. Students and families should expect to stay for the duration of the recital. 
4. If your teacher has multiple recital dates (denoted by **), please contact us with any questions. Your child’s teacher will also be in touch to confirm recital dates.
5. Jamming Classes: Both groups will perform in the recital on Tuesday, December 7 in Crouch Chapel. 
6. Adult students: Please let your teachers know if you are interested in participating in one of the Adult Share Recital on Monday, December 13 at 7 pm.
