Our winter music recital for 2022 will be held at a NEW LOCATION:  The Saber Center of the Performing Arts, 8222 S 51st St, Franklin, WI 53132.

  • Arrive 15 minutes before your act start time.  For ex: if your act is at 1 pm, arrive at 12:45 pm

  • When you enter the building, there will be teachers waiting to gather all of the music students to walk them back to the dressing room, where all performers will be before and after they perform.  

  • Recital Dress Code: formal attire, feel free to wear holiday flair!

  • When it nears the time for you to perform, a teacher will line you up, and walk you backstage.  

  • When you walk out on the stage, go near the microphone closest to your height, and speak loud and clear, saying your name, and the name of your song.

  • After your introduction, you will perform your song.  When you are done, grab your music if you have any,  take a bow, and head backstage where a teacher will be waiting to take you back to the dressing room until the recital is done.  

  • When the recital act is over, the dressing room attendant will let you know to grab anything you brought, and they will walk you back out to meet your parents in the hall.  


    • Your sheet music/lyrics IF you need them. Karaoke music for vocalists will be provided by your music teacher. 

    • Students can bring bottled water (must have their first and last name on it!), and any items they want to use while they are waiting to perform.  For example, a book to read, their phone, homework, coloring book and crayons (for little ones), etc. 

    • Parents and students NEED to make sure ALL items are taken from the dressing room BEFORE they leave the recital.  NO FOOD is allowed in the dressing room.  

  • Please note that this will be a bigger stage than you may be used to if you have performed before at our recitals at the Oak Creek Salvation Army.  
  • Be prepared if the sound isn’t quite what you expect it to be.  For example, if the music starts too low, we will adjust it so you can hear it better.  Sometimes what you hear isn’t exactly what the audience hears, so please know that we will help you and make adjustments if needed.  
  • Vocalists and all students when you speak or sing into the mic: please make sure your mouth is close enough (but not touching!) the mic when you perform so that the audience can hear you.
