Congratulations, Winter Showcase Musicians!

Congratulations to all of the LHS families who participated in this Saturday’s Winter Showcase Concerts! Violinists and violists performed works ranging from Suzuki Book I favorites to Beethoven’s Spring Sonata and Schumann’s Märchenbilder. From Bartók to Mozart, our LHS performers demonstrated command of a wide range of musical styles.

We were thrilled to once again offer students the opportunity to work with LHS pianist Evelyn Lam (https://laurenhaleystudios.com/meettheartists/) as Ms. Lam completes her doctoral degree in piano performance at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.

Virtuosi of Houston and Karen Needham hosted both the 5:30pm and 7:30pm LHS recitals in their beautiful studio. Thank you again, Virtuosi and Ms. Needham!

Parents can submit their photos from the recital to be posted here. Congratulations again to all performers!

LHS Welcomes 2017!

As we celebrate the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 it’s wonderful to take a look back at the accomplishments of LHS students! As your teacher, I’m so honored to have the opportunity to work with all of you. In the past few months alone we’ve launched a new, larger studio space at the Sugar Land Art Center and Gallery, performed all over Houston, and celebrated recitals, competitions, auditions, academic awards, and youth orchestra performances. It’s so tremendously exciting to see everyone take on leadership positions in their school orchestras as well. Bravo, 2016, and here’s to starting 2017 off on the right note!

 

 

 

 

A Celebration of Eastman in Houston

Hello, all!

Last week I had the honor of attending A Celebration of Eastman in Houston with Eastman’s wonderful leadership faculty, alumni, and supporters. Eastman Dean Jamal Rossi presented Todd Frazier with the 2016 Luminary Award in recognition of Frazier’s incredible contributions to the arts. Students, you’ll know Todd Frazier as the founder of the American Festival for the Arts here in Houston! He is currently the Director of the Center for Performing Arts Medicine at Houston Methodist Hospital.

I was so happy to see Donna Brink Fox at the reception and to have the chance to thank her for her profound influence on my musical life. To students, Dr. Fox champions academic achievement, joy, and perseverance. To teachers, she demonstrates the lifelong positive impact you have on your students and their communities.

Speaking of Eastman’s leadership, I was thrilled to connect with Jamal Rossi, Eastman’s Joan and Martin Messinger Dean. His enthusiasm for music’s ability to change the world perfectly demonstrates Eastman’s dynamic role in the 21st century.
