A Letter from the VC Music School Director – December 2022

Dear Music School Families:

I am so proud of the 11 musicians who shared their beautiful music at this year’s VC Gala. Thank you to the students for their time and dedication. 


2022 Fall Recitals were a success! It was fun to get the students back on a performance stage in the High School Auditorium. Thank you to all of the instructors for preparing their students with the skills and confidence they need to perform in front of family and friends. 

Also, The Flutissimos did an outstanding job performing our collection of holiday music at The Grotto-Festival of Lights on Friday, Nov. 25. Our final holiday performance will be at Nordstrom, Washington Square, on Saturday, Dec. 10 at 5 p.m. Please stop by to hear our music and say hello.

Four flute students provided holiday music during this year’s Tree Lighting Ceremony. Thank you to Olivia S., Morgan T., Ayush W., Jingtong Y. for your time and dedication in sharing this special event with the VC community.
