A new semester has started and the Los Medanos College Music program has scheduled a lot of exciting events for the fall.
At the end of the month, the Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC) has recitals scheduled for Sept. 25 and Sept. 26. The recitals will be held in room 710 of the college complex at LMC from 1:30 to 4 p.m.
A Chamber Strings and Baroque Ensemble will be held Oct. 12 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. in room 720, also in the college complex at LMC.
The following event will be held Oct. 18 from 3 to 7 p.m. where the LMC Concert Band will perform. Students Katelyn Ririe and Brenna Raya, who are in the Concert Band, have been showing a lot of enthusiasm for their upcoming event.
“I’m excited for the concert, especially because I love playing the French horn,” said Ririe.
Although it’s early in the semester, the concert date is fast approaching and the students have already begun to prepare.
“We just started practicing and learning the songs we are going to perform for the concert,” said Raya.
Three days following the concert band’s event, the recital class will be having a recital from 1 to 2 p.m. The MTAC will put on another recital Oct. 24 from 1:30 to 4 p.m.
The last event scheduled for the month, the Chord Advantage Concert, will take place Oct. 27 from 7:50 to 11 p.m.
There will be fewer recitals the month after that. There are two MTAC Recitals scheduled Nov. 7 and 21, both held from 1:30 to 4 p.m.
Starting on Dec. 2, the LMC Concert Band will have a performance at 7 pm. A Chamber Strings Baroque Ensemble will be held Dec. 7 from 6 to 11 p.m.
The LMC Recital class will be having two recitals on Dec. 8 and 10 from 1 to 2 p.m. There will be a guitar Recital and a Jazz Band concert Dec. 9, both starting at 7 p.m.
“It is a really cool thing to experience, the atmosphere is a lot different than it was in high school. I like the people I get to work with too, everyone is passionate about their music,” said Matthew Sutton, of the Jazz Band.
The last event scheduled in December is the Piano Class Recital on the 16th at 7 p.m.
