Dear SPCM Community,
Welcome to the 2013-2014 academic year at the Saint Paul Conservatory of Music. Fall semester starts on Tuesday, September 3rd. We are so glad that you are continuing to be part of our great musical community.
We have a wonderful year in front of us. We are pleased to offer free participation in the Saint Paul Children’s Chorus to any student who is taking lessons at the conservatory for a semester. Being involved in the choir is not only fun, but develops a broad sense of musicality and ensemble skills. We also will be offering many more opportunities for chamber music ensembles, coordinated by Rena Kraut and Natalia Moiseeva. This program was a success last year and we will have more ensembles this coming year. Chamber music is the art of communicating with sounds and make beautiful music with friends and other musicians. I encourage you to register yourself or your child to this great program.
Our summer children camp was wonderful as always and the new Maestro of the Future camp for students from 13-17 years old was a great success.
Our annual events such as Halloween and Holiday Concerts, Students Recitals, Early Music Day, Saturday Matinees, Spring Rhapsody are already in preparation. Our Coffee Concert series will be expanded to more locations in Saint Paul. Don’t miss these opportunities!
Please join us at Music 4 All Breakfast – Wednesday, October 23rd, 8:30-9:30am- University Club- Come and learn about our wonderful Music 4 All program.
As part of our mission, we offer financial aid for families who can’t afford tuition. Please, call the office for more information. We are glad to say that last year the Conservatory awarded $23,000 in financial aid thanks to the generosity of our donors and foundations.
We also had a wonderful year of outreach programs and expanded our music in public schools, hospitals and nursing homes.
Join us in the wonderful adventure of bringing the beauty of music in people ‘s lives. I look forward to seeing returning students and new faces around the Conservatory. I wish you the best of luck in your music experience here.
