Guidelines and Registration
Each spring, the Needham Concert Society sponsors student festivals to give piano, string, and voice students an opportunity to perform in front of an audience of family, friends, and others. The recitals, which are free and open to the public, are also designed to foster community among students and their teachers. (Registration information for the other two festivals can be found at string festival and voice festival.)
To see piano festival chair Steven Snitzer talk about this annual event, visit Hitting the Right Notes, broadcast on the Needham Channel, April 20, 2023.
