A student from our recent "Composer's Workshop"! Sign up for the next "Advanced Theory & Composition" seminar and increase your skills on whatever instrument (accordion or not!)
Thank you again to all who came to support our very first Composers' Workshop Showcase! It was amazing to hear these incredibly talented young composers perform their own works on piano and cello. We are gearing up for our next workshop, "Advanced Composition and Theory" at The Catoctin School of Music. If you or anyone you know is interested in discovering how music works and how to compose it yourself, please contact me or Catoctin to take part in this 8 week series!
Thank you Ms. Jennene!! What a wonderful recital!
Shout out to Fairfax Fine Violins https://ffviolins.com/ and Shar Music https://www.sharmusic.com/ for their excellent, expedient customer service that I received today. I highly recommend them for your Violin needs!
We at Art Sweet Art are thrilled to have some of your talented Jazz and Sax performers at tonight’s First Friday Reception for our featured artists.
This sounds like fun
This is why we take lessons. Not because we think we will be famous, but learning to play an instrument is a gift.

Tiffany Boston nice idea, thank you! I love this commercial titled The Gift. This is why we won’t let her stop piano lessons. Not because I think she will ever be famous, but we are trying to give her something more meaningful than a toy. Plus I take them too (lead by example, right?)

Go Brian~ Thanks for your love and commitment to music and to teach all your CSM kids!!
Congrats to Xander, a CSM saxophone student, for being featured by Vandoren USA!

Just a quick reminder that we are OPEN today, Monday 9/26, despite the fact that LCPS is closed for a school holiday. If you are scheduled for a lesson today, your teacher will expect to see you, unless you have notified us that you cannot attend.

You can always find all of this info on the yearly studio calendar found on our website at this link: CSM Calendar. We plan our CSM year in advance, so closings, holidays and recital information can be found there.

If you cannot make your regularly scheduled lesson please email [email protected].

Thank you, and for those who celebrate, Shanah Tovah!

Loudoun Symphony Orchestra
presents

When Music Speaks
Featuring Conducting Finalist, Dr. Hayden Denesha

Whether we are reflecting on our own lives or current events in the world, music is a powerful force that can help us express our thoughts or emotions when words cannot.

The concert title is meant to be an incomplete sentence that the composer's intentions fill - when music speaks, people listen; when music speaks, a voice can be heard. The works featured on this program were composed to celebrate life, remember loss, and inspire change around us for the benefit of humanity.
The program will be conducted by Dr. Hayden Denesha, a finalist for the LSO conductor position.

Doors will open at 7 PM

Concert program:
Guiseppe Verdi: Overture to Nabucco
Jessie Montgomery: Soul Force
Edward Elgar: Sospiri
Dimitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
