DVMTA's annual Music Marathon was held on October 16, 2021. This all day recital took place at various locations in the east valley, including Superstition Springs Mall, Southeast Valley Bible Church, and Cornerstone Reformed Baptist Church. 430 students from 23 different teachers participated. Due to COVID-19 we were still unable to perform at retirement communities, but were thrilled to be able to perform live. An virtual option was also provided for any students wishing to submit their performance recording. The event was a great success, with many students dressing in their Halloween costumes to perform. We really love this event, which offers students the opportunity to have a lot of fun in a low stress environment. Thank you so much to Cavalcade committee members Charles Newton, Diana Palmer and Lori Kaye Faler.
October holds so many possibilities! Students can perform in the Music Marathon and showcase a piece they have been diligently preparing. Original compositions are being recorded and transcriptions are being finished up this month. Duet groups are being decided as the music has been selected and registration for the Cavalcade of Rhythm opens up the end of this month. These events provide added motivation to practice and wonderful opportunities for students to share their music with others!
Working together is the only way all these events are possible. The Committee Chairmen who are at the forefront are the unsung heroes! We all benefit when we come together to accomplish that which we could not accomplish on our own. I’m excited about all the possibilities, and am looking forward to a very rewarding year!
