NEW FOR 2017… Recitals!

The recitals will help teach the student musicians to cope with nerves and develop strong practice skills, important to all musicians. Please invite all family and friends!

  • The Charlestown Middle School recitals will take place at Charlestown Middle School.
  • The CHS Recital will be held in the beautiful “Inn on Main” in Charlestown. This is one of the oldest homes in Charlestown and newly renovated. The main room is stunning with large ceilings, fireplace, and a baby grand Yamaha piano. The acoustics are fantastic and will be a great experience for all of our High School musicians! The Band Boosters will be working hard to make this an extra special event for all of the students, friends, and family members.
