Junior Recital

The Santa Clara Branch offers a recital opportunity for students who are just beginning to develop experience performing in public. The Branch Junior Recitals will be held in a more relaxed setting, memorization is not required, and students in elementary levels are welcome to play. Repertoire should range from beginning pieces up to early Sonatinas.
