AMFA Spring Recital 

The AMFA Spring recital featured performances by our music students. Congratulations to all who participated!

 

Thank you all for joining us at our musical gathering! It was great seeing everyone. The positive environment that all the students, parents and instructors created was priceless. We had more than 50 performers at the event in most music genres, ranging from Piano, Guitar, Violin, Drums and Vocal performances. Everyone was happy to be part of an in-person event and have a chance to perform their beloved pieces. 6 hours hardly seemed enough time to hear all prepared pieces. It was also heartwarming to see so many of our online students meeting their instructors and performing live.

We want to thank all our Instructors and Volunteers for their dedication and professionalism!

The next event is scheduled for October 2022.
