The Music Institute (formerly known as the Musical Arts Center or MAC) is a community-based music school offering a broad range of non-credit quality music lessons, classes, coaching, and performing experiences with highly-trained faculty at affordable rates.
Our 2012-2013 Concert Season features an artistically phenomenal and musically diverse Guest Artist Series. We are pleased to bring to you Anne Koscielny who will return, by popular demand, in Fall 2012 in a performance of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 and in the Spring, for a solo recital; a first appearance of renowned Chamber Musician and Early Music Specialist, Kenneth Slowik, in an exquisite harpsichord performance of J. S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations; and the ever popular, in-demand Jazz Trombonist, Jim McFalls in a concert with the HCC Faculty Jazz Ensemble. In addition to the concerts, each artist will share their pedagogical insight in a public master class.
Our fantastic Faculty Concert Series will present you with a wide spectrum of delightful programs from instrumental and vocal chamber music to beloved jazz-standards of all times. Highlights of this season’s programming include Stockhausen Mantra, Bartók Contrasts, Anderson-Roe arrangement of the Strauss Blue Danube Fantasy, British Music Hall Gems, and more! Also, don’t miss out on sampling our blossoming Student Ensemble and Spotlight Concerts at the end of each semester.
