On October 29, 2016, Leslie’s Music Studio joined with the studios of Julie Bosworth and Liza Zumbrunnen to present a Halloween Recital for students in grades K-5 at Cedar Lake Village retirement community.
This year a record number of over 250 students participated in OMTA’s Solo Festival at Bell Cultural Events Center. Entries included piano, voice, harp, orchestra and band instrumentalists. I am proud of my students who participated! Many received superior ratings on their performances and theory quizzes, and a few even had perfect scores!
