Strawberry & Tea is back!
VAM is pleased to announce the return of the ‘Strawberry & Tea’ monthly concert series. Open to teacher submissions, these concerts celebrate all levels of musical learning at VAM. We invite you to use the online form provided to request your students to perform; all ages, experience levels, and instruments of study are welcome (subject to timing, and health order restraints).
This year we will be holding two concerts on the Sunday afternoon listed below. We are looking to welcome a maximum of 15 students or 1 hour of performance to the KRH. Masks, although optional, are encouraged for anyone wishing to wear one. Health restrictions are subject to change and will be communicated with registered performers and their teachers.
Now accepting submissions for:
Strawberry & Tea Concert
Sunday, May 1st, 1:00pm & 3:00pm
Koerner Recital Hall
TERMS OF SUBMISSION
1. Submissions are first come, first serve
2. Only students submitted online will be considered. No paper submissions accepted.
3. Submissions must be made by a teacher.
4. You will receive an automated email when the form is submitted successfully, and a second email from VAM Administration when the student is confirmed to play in the concert. If you have not received these two emails, you are not registered and therefore unable to perform.
If you have questions or concerns about the submission process, or if you did not receive an automated email within a few minutes of submitting, please contact Aidan ([email protected]) or come to the front office during office hours.
Maximum performance time for each student is 8 minutes.
You may submit two pieces or movements (at the most) as long as they are both under four minutes. Otherwise, please submit only one piece or movement that meets the 8-minute maximum.
To promote enhanced public speaking and communication skills, each performer is welcomed to announce their name, repertoire selection and accompanist (if applicable) before their performance.
Video recordings will be made available for a fee, registration for recordings will be sent out to confirmed performers prior to the performance.
Submission deadline: Monday, April 25th, 2022
Declination of Submissions:
VAM administration reserves the right to decline submissions if the student’s performance is not a reflection of VAM programs, if the student has been absent without excuse for previous concerts, if any of the terms stated herein are not followed, if the concert has already reached capacity (e.g., if a concert is filled outside the regular office hours of staff monitoring submissions and the form is not yet updated), or for any case deemed appropriate by the Executive Director. Notice of declination will be sent promptly when the issue comes to the administration’s attention
