Student Recitals

DATE: Saturday, June 24, 2023
LOCATION: Klein Lyceum Hall at McDonogh School

We are proud to showcase the talents of our students and the hard work they have put into their musical studies. Our student recitals are a great opportunity for our community to come together and enjoy the beauty of music.

Each year, Baltimore School of Music hosts several student recitals where our students can perform in front of a live audience. These recitals are held in a professional concert hall and are open to the public. Our recitals feature a variety of students of all ages, instruments, and skill levels.

Our recitals provide our students with the opportunity to showcase their musical progress and gain valuable performance experience. Our supportive and encouraging atmosphere helps our students to build confidence and feel proud of their accomplishments.

We believe that music is for everyone, and our student recitals are a wonderful example of this. Whether you are a student, parent, teacher, or music lover, we welcome you to join us at our next recital and witness the magic of music firsthand.
