Hey Mirabilis Students! Summer session wraps up this week. I am please to say that, to my knowledge, we have had no issues within the studio and everyone has stayed healthy!
I will have make ups for those who need early next week, mainly on Monday. Also the fall calendar is mostly set. We start back on Monday, August 24th.
Our Fall Session begins on Monday, August 24th. We will continue to do our lessons online for the beginning of the session.
Like all of you, I look forward to when we can return to regular in-person lessons. I understand that many of you will be returning to an in-school learning environment. For our purposes the online lessons are providing a good and safe alternative for the moment and I would really like to help keep us as healthy as we can remain. Once it appears that the health situation has stabilized we will make the change.
In the meantime, we can do some in-person lessons on a case-by-case basis, as needed. Masks will be required for any inside lessons, but whenever weather permits we will meet under the tree outside the studio. This is the safest for everyone. I appreciate your understanding and pray that this pandemic will end soon.
I will send a reminder as we get closer to the start of the fall session. See the Fall Session Calendar below for all of the dates.
Master Classes and Ensembles
Normally we would be starting the fall with ensemble music to get ready for our Ensemble Christmas Recital. I have included master classes and ensemble rehearsal in the calendar, but we will have to see how things go. I will keep you posted!
Labor Day Holiday
The studio will be closed in observance of Labor Day holiday on:
Monday, September 7th—no lessons
Lesson will resume Tuesday, September 8th.
(Monday students will make up this lesson the week of Thanksgiving.)
Congratulations to Savannah Potucek
One unfortunate consequence of our inability to have our Spring Recital “live and in person” is that we did not get a chance to celebrate the graduation of Mirabilis Guitarist Savannah Potucek. Savannah has been with Mirabilis Studio since 2011 when she was just eight years old. She has performed at all of the recitals since then and is an inaugural member of the Mirabilis Guitar Ensemble. Besides developing into a wonderful musician, she has always shown enthusiasm and support for everyone in the studio. Though she could not perform her solo recital this summer as planned, we have moved it to early 2021 and hope to secure a date for it soon. Savannah will attend either College of the Ozarks or Schreiner University this fall. Congratulations to Savannah!
