VGS Outreach – The Atrium Downtown (Yates & Blanchard) 
April 2018 and through the summer
Upcoming: James Austin, Sunday April 29th, 1pm
Starting April 2018, every weekend Sat/Sun 11am-3pm, the Atrium welcomes classical guitar performers to play for as long as they like. It’s a great opportunity for:
  • class recitals – share your music outside the classroom
  • solo and ensemble recital practice (chamber music welcome)
  • getting used to playing in public
  • increasing your performance endurance (playing for longer times)
ALL ages are welcome, and young kids are very welcome! Performance slots are available by sign up. Again, please contact us if you are interested.
