Open to any middle and high school students currently in private lessons, Stories Framed Photography is allowing us to come in to their space to perform a piece or two in front of a backdrop of the students’ choice.
Each student musician or composer should bring along his or her pre-prepared music, instrument, and willingness for an amazing photo op! Music stands and a Roland Go Piano will be provided. Parents and friends are welcome to come along, although seating will be limited.
Stories Framed will not be taking pictures at the actual event; they are simply allowing a great setting for students to be instagramed, etc.
Snacks will also be served.
WMV Founder Allison Schweitzer is a hornist from Wauwatosa who currently plays with Avec le Bois quintet, is on the sub list for the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra and freelances otherwise in the area. At this event she will have along a variety of horn duets, trios and quartets to try. Student hornists should bring their instruments and music stands along.
Following each ticket purchase, the student will be asked for their current grade and most recent WSMA solo level, so appropriate repertoire will be selected for the day.
