DVMTA students and teachers gathered at Mesquite High School Saturday morning for one last rehearsal to get ready for our Cavalcade of Rhythm Duet Ensemble Performance. One last opportunity to get everyone in their places and to put the finishing touches on the pieces that will be showcased. The rain could not dampen the spirits of all these eager students who were anxiously anticipating performing for their families and friends.
DVMTA students came to Cavalcade Rehearsals ready to get their groove on as they prepared for the "Dance Party" Cavalcade of Rhythm Performance. Between February 3rd and Feb. 20th, students attended three rehearsals each to practice with their duet groups. Our DVMTA teachers directed the groups with energy and precision, and of course, a lot of fun. Many thanks to The Music Store for hosting the rehearsals and to the many DVMTA members who volunteered their time to help.
The annual Original Composition Festival offers students the opportunity the compose, notate, record and perform their own musical compositions and arrangements. This year, 103 talented and determined students submitted their pieces for evaluation, and performed them at one of three recitals. Such an amazing display of originality and musicality! Thank you to these students for their hard work, and to their teachers for helping and guiding them along the way. Special thanks to the Original Composition committee, Toni Tetreau, Debbie Engelsman and Jessica Heidt.
Prelude music was provided by DVMTA members, who performed their own compositions.
Music Marathon was our first student event of the new DVMTA year and it was a huge success! Over 300 students of DVMTA teachers performed during the all-day recitals. This year's venues included Superstition Springs Mall, Towerpoint Resort, Brookdale-Park Regency, Generations at Agritopia, Arizona Piano, and Legacy Retirement Residence. What a wonderful opportunity for students to perform in the community and to brighten the day for so many. Thank you to Dana Rodgers, Penny Carpenter and Tammy Shorts for making the day so memorable!
