4th Annual Recital – “Music Is Life”

Music Is Life Grey

We hope you can join us for our 4th Annual Recital!

This recital will be highlighting the process of making music, not the product itself. For many, the “process” or skills needed to perform might be articulating the lyrics, remembering to bring his/her music, grasping the mallets to play a drum, making eye contact with the audience, or sustaining attention for the performance. Performances will be polished and protected but in a different way than the average music recital.  We can’t wait to see what our clients will perform this year!  A variety of instruments and music therapy techniques will be used throughout each show which will keep every performance “one of a kind” and sure to inspire!

Due to an anticipated 75+ performers, our recital has grown from two shows to FOUR shows!  Each show will feature a different lineup of performers.  We anticipate each show to be 60 – 75 minutes long.  We are excited to have special guests from the Coulee Region Humane Society’s Pet Therapy Program to greet audience members before or between shows.  Doors to the recital hall will open 15 minutes prior to each show and seating is general admission.  Feel free to stay for one show or attend all four!
