Fall & Spring Student Recitals
Potomac music students of all ages are given the opportunity to perform in the Fall and/or Spring student recitals.These recitals are a great time for students to show off their talent and skills to family & friends while gaining valuable performance experience. Our recitals, which take place in the de Laski Performing Arts Building on the George Mason University campus, are a professional yet casual affair which allow our community of students and their families and instructors to connect and support each other.
Artwork by our visual art students will also be on display in the de Laski lobby area. Additionally, our acting students will present their theater showcases in the Black Box Theater in the lower level of the de Laski Performing Arts Building.
Participation in the recitals is optional, although strongly encouraged.There is NO recital fee for participation (except for an accompanist fee). The performance space is equipped with a Steinway concert grand piano. Performance attendance is free and open to the public. Printed programs listing the performers will be available, as well as a decorated "photo-opp" display. Recital Certificates will be handed out after the performance. For your enjoyment, light refreshments will follow each recital. It's our little way of saying THANK YOU for being a part of Potomac!
