Hi Everyone!
I hope you’re enjoying your July! We sure are. I am working ferociously on our August and fall semester schedule, but want you to know about three days of lesson possibilities: July 21, 22, 23, Monday through Wednesday. I can teach both mornings and afternoons. I know some of you are out of town, but I’d love to see those who are here. Just send an email back with your windows for those days. I’ll post more times as soon as I can.
Cheers,
Lucia

Bravo! Gala concert and recitals

Please join us tomorrow, Saturday July 12th at 2:30 at Ted Mann Concert Hall at the University of Minnesota for the gala concert of Bravo! Our own Meriel, Imala, Alec, and Nygel will be performing in many of the chamber groups, many coached by Bruce. Some of you will be ready by next summer to attend, and it would be fun for you to hear what it’s all about. There is also a casual concert this afternoon at 3:30 and a recital tonight at 7:30, both at Lloyd Ultan Hall at the School of Music.

Lucia with Amithy and Vikram 2014 Spring-1 (1)Dear Parents,

That was a wonderful recital on Sunday. I’m very excited by how far your kids have come this semester.

I promised that I would let everyone know what my teaching days would be for the next six weeks. Some of my schedule will be unknown until I start Bravo, so this is as close as I can estimate. There may be some changes. Please check out your calendars and preserve some spots.

I can teach:
Monday after 3:30 and Tuesday all day, June 9 & 10.
Mondays, June 16 & 23.
Friday, June 27 before 5 p.m.
Saturday, June 28 from noon until 5.
Monday, June 30.

In July I can teach:
Friday July 11 until 5 and Saturday the 12 until 1 .

After mid July I will be doing some travel, and those dates are not firm yet.
