From the Director, Ryan Cullen - “I was very proud of all students this year for their tremendous efforts and concert preparations. All of the performances were wonderful and it’s always a joy for me to see the personalities of our students shine through on stage providing a lifetime of memories for all in attendance.
This year, I’m pleased to announce that a record number of trophies and awards were presented to all student performers for jobs well done. Award categories included: Effort, Original Composition, Most Improved, Most Accomplished, Consistent Practice, Excellent, and Superior. Students who participated in LAAPAFEST this past February were also awarded gold, silver, and/or bronze medals for their overall ratings.
All in all, these were some very memorable concerts, and if you couldn’t participate this year, we hope that you’ll be able to perform in our Christmas Concerts this December! Be sure to check our website this Fall for new video clips of the concerts.” So congratulations once again to all of our Spring Recital performers.
