Our 2015 Premier Performers: Ten Years of Inspiring Excellence – Anniversary Gala and Concert
We are proud to announce our 2015 Premier Performers! The will be appearing at our Gala Celebration on June 14 a the Vacaville Performing Arts Theater.
Each year we select the top 15 solo and / or group performers that demonstrate our standard of excellence in music education and performing arts. Each young artist must audition to demonstrate expressive musicianship and meticulous performance ability.
As we celebrate our 10th season, we present our finest group yet of Premier Performers. In addition to solo and concerto performances, the audience will enjoy performance selections from our TnT Rock Band and Treble Trio (woodwinds, and violin).
The young artists chosen to perform, as Premier Performers, must be actively enrolled as music students in Solano Music Conservatory. Solano Music Conservatory is a division of YACM that specializes in rigorous and private Music training.
