  • Spring Fling

    Spring Fling

    Sunday, April 19th, 2020

    Students of all ages perform music outside the parameters of the normal standard repertoire. The intent is to showcase soloists and ensembles playing ‘light’ music, such as show tunes, jazz,
    popular music and arrangements.

    Both piano solo repertoire and ensemble music are welcome. Ensemble members may include the student’s teacher, parent, sibling, another piano student or instrumentalist. All piano students must be currently studying with a member of the AAAPTG.

    Music does not need to be memorized. Students do not need to announce their pieces because there will be a printed program.

    SPRING FLING FORMS

    Please take the time to download the following, updated Spring Fling forms:
