CONCERT FAQS:
Click HERE  to view all concert FAQs on our website

Do you have siblings in different concerts?  Due to multiple parent requests over the past year to make the recital experience better for our students, we have made the decision to schedule each student on the same day and during an act where their teacher can be present for them.  In the past we had put all siblings together no matter what, so many students would perform in acts where their teacher could not be present.  We have decided to make this change so all of our students can have their teacher present for support and encouragement. 

Due to the increased length of our performances each year, we have decided to have concerts on 2 days instead of only 1.  This allows our teachers to NOT have to work more than 11 hours in a row, and this also allows us to have earlier act times, especially for those students who are very young.

Due to both of the changes above, we will have some families that will be scheduled on both dates of the concert: June 1st and June 2nd, OR in 2 different acts on the same date.  These families will receive up to 4 FREE tickets to the second concert date/act.   If you are one of these families (see the link below) please email us your ticket receipt at [email protected] so we can verify your concert dates, and tickets purchased (up to 4) to put a credit into your account for up to 4 free tickets.

**Recital and other important APA dates, including when we are closed for holidays, can all be found on the APA calendar.
