ADULT MUSIC GATHERING

NEXT UPCOMING ADULT MUSIC GATHERING DATE:
Saturday, APRIL 22, 2017 
TIME: 1:00PM – 4:00PM

We understand that as adult students, playing at a children’s music recital is not considered a “fun idea”, therefore, Imagine Music Inc. hosts annual adult get-togethers in which adult students can choose to perform. Not only is it a great way for adults to hear others play, but they can also socialize and share tips and tricks! It reassures our students that they are not alone on their musical journey and helps them to overcome anxieties of playing in front of other people. We have lots of fun and it is always a potluck!

Deadline For Registering:  April 7th, 2017


CHATEAU RENOIR MUSIC EVENT

NEXT UPCOMING CHATEAU RENOIR MUSIC EVENT DATE: 
Friday, May 19, 2017
Time: 11:00am – 12:00pm

This is the perfect opportunity for students to give back to the community as well as show off their performance abilities.  Twice a year students have the opportunity to visit the Chateau Renoir Retirement Center to play music to its patrons.  This is a perfect “gig” opportunity where teachers and students must provide a small set of songs that the seniors will enjoy listening to!

Chateau Renoir Retirement Living Center

JUNIOR RECITAL

JUNIOR RECITAL DATE:  May 27, 2017
Time:  5:00pm – 6:00pm

Meant for our young beginner students, this recital will provide experience for them to prepare for our BIG RECITAL. We will not use a P.A system and is approximately one hour in length. Students will still be expected to announce their names and pieces (and of course, bow at the end). Being that they are all beginners, students also don’t need to worry about being intimidated by our intermediate and advanced students!

ACOUSTIC RECITAL

ACOUSTIC RECITAL DATE:  May 27, 2017
Time:  6:00PM – 7:00pm

This intimate and quiet recital caters to our acoustic instruments. There are no amplified instruments, no playing with recordings, this recital is meant for a more formal environment. It is simple and great for students who are preparing for exams.

“BIG” RECITALS

“BIG” SPRING RECITAL DATE:  JUNE 17, 2017
Recital 1 Time: 1:45pm – 3:15pm
Recital 2 Time: 4:15pm – 5:30pm

Every year, Imagine Music Inc. hosts two annual “Big” music recitals. This event allows students of all instruments, ages and styles to gather and share their love of music.  This is our “showstopper” recital equipped with a full PA System including microphones, AMPS, a sound technician and backing tracks.   This recital will have everything from Classical to Folk songs to Rock to Jazz.  Imagine Music Inc. students love playing at this recital and audience members are constantly entertained by the variety this recital has to offer.  

All students must speak into the microphone and introduce themselves and their piece. Some tell jokes or stories about what they are playing and some speeches are quite funny. We really promote a non-competitive atmosphere as our goal is for the kids to enjoy playing their music for others.

OTHER LOCAL MUSIC FESTIVALS/EVENTS

Imagine Music Inc. supports our students with performing music outside of the recital environment.    We believe that it is important for students to experience what it is like to work in the music entertainment industry and to create the correct ambiance for the environment they are playing in.

Performing and Learning Opportunities for Students  

Calgary Performing Arts Festival (formerly Kiwanis Festival) The Festival began as a small competition back in 1931 but quickly grew so large and now has become one of the greatest performing arts events in Calgary, and one of the largest amateur competitive festivals in North America. link: http://cpafestival.ca/

The Calgary APTA Festival is a non-competitive, volunteer-run piano festival that takes place each spring in Calgary.  The festival is open to students of all ages, interests and levels.  The goal of the festival is to provide students with an opportunity to expand their musical and performance skills in a non-competitive setting.  APTA Festival link:  https://festival.aptaonline.net/calgary-apta-festival-registration-2017/
