If you’re in a downtown restaurant Tuesday at lunch, don’t be surprised if a musical event suddenly breaks out.
Students from Nova Scotia Community College’s Music Arts Program will give their end-of-term recital at the Old Triangle on Dec. 8 at 1 p.m. If you can’t get there, the event will also be streamed live on Facebook and aired on Seaside Cable.
Those who attend will be in for a real treat, says Kimberley Fraser, a full-time faculty member for the Sydney-based program.
“There is such a diversity of experience in this class,” says Fraser of the seven students taking part in the first semester of the two-year program. “It’s been such an unusual year that it will be really neat to see their level of progress.”
The class is the first one to go through the program and features everything from seasoned professionals to those just getting their feet wet in the music business. Students taking the program are learning musicianship, theory, composition, songwriting, business and performance skills. The final recital will put all those skills to use in front of a live audience.
While there is no cover to attend the event, Fraser recommends reserving your spot at the restaurant since seating is limited. And she says to expect a good show from the students.
“I am so proud of what they have done so far.”
