MASTERCLASS: an event in which students play in front of an audience and receive feedback and instruction from a guest teacher. The masterclass is open to the public; performance for the teacher is not required. It is an opportunity not only for students to perform, but also for the audience to get an intimate behind-the-scenes look in to the art of performing. Contact Heather at CVSM if you are interested in performing on piano or organ for the masterclass: 717-261-1220 x5 or firstname.lastname@example.org
