Student concerts in 2020 – live and virtual.

Student concerts in 2020. Great music, prepared for your enjoyment.

Student concerts in 2020 were a mixture of live and online events. The year began with a live concert by the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra. The concert was fun, and the band played to a packed house. Ascencion Music Academy students warmed up the audience with lively music from the early 1900s. Our students played and sang well, and the concert-goers loved them. We all learned much about ragtime, the musical ancestor of jazz.

Why virtual student concerts?

By mid-March, 2020 had become the year of safer-at-home. People everywhere worked and played from home because of the global COVID crisis. Initially, when we had to cancel our April and June concerts, we were disappointed. Later, we realized that if we could take our teaching online, we could take our concerts online, too.

Creating our virtual shows.

In total, Ascencion Music Academy presented two student shows online in 2020. Our Summer Showcase featured recordings students made at home, while our Fall Showcase featured recordings we made in the studio. First, to create the finished projects, Ms. Cathy edited the individual videos together, assembling them into short compilations. Then, she posted the showcases online for private viewing by our students and their families.
