Curious about the why-and-how of CYM's year round Concert schedule?
We check in with Leah Givelber, our Vice President of Academic Affairs- for a refresher.
As we at CYM look ahead to the spring and summer we see sunny, warm weather and many, many concert opportunities...
We have several Community Concerts coming up...
|The HULLABALOO! Community Concert, held in Sewickley|
There was an Outreach Concert at Vincentian Home Friday, April 10th at 6:30.
|CYM pianists were featured at the Music Plus Concert Series, an Outreach Concert Opportunity|
CYM’s Outreach Concert program introduces CYM’s vision for its students to a wide audience and contributes to the greater community. These concerts are generally held in a public environment in which the audience may be casually listening. Young performers build confidence by performing polished pieces, and develop concentration by playing in new settings with a wide range of variables.
CYM’s Annual Solo Recitals are happening on May 9 at 10 and 12:30 at the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh.

The two Solo Recitals include instrumental performances by all CYM students who take lesson and are able to play the Twinkle Variations, or an equivalent on their instrument. The 10:00 recital will primarily feature piano performances, and the 12:30 recital will primarily feature violin, cello, guitar and voice. Please plan to attend one of these Solo Recitals – the chance to listen to performers in many different places in the process of learning an instrument is lovely and inspiring.
Early Childhood Music families will enjoy the recitals and find them motivating. We understand that small children can become restless, but by attending even a portion of the recital, your child can learn to become comfortable with a performance setting. If you have arrived late or should it become necessary for you to leave the recital early, please do so during the applause.
Keep in Mind...
Out of respect for the performers, we wish to encourage good manners by asking that each audience member be very attentive and that children sit quietly. Performers sit together, apart from their families. It is suggested that parents keep concert programs out of the hands of children. If you have a baby or toddler with you, sit near the exit in case you need to leave and please do so in between performances (during applause). If you are running late, please wait until you hear applause to enter the auditorium.
A note about performance attire: Proper attire for a performer includes dress slacks, a collared shirt and dress shoes for boys, and dress slacks or skirts with blouses, dresses and dress shoes for girls. Skirts and dresses must be worn at or below the knee, or with appropriate leg covering (e.g. tights or leggings). Sneakers, jeans, sleeveless or tee shirts, shirts with large logos, distracting jewelry and “flip-flop” type shoes are not acceptable for concert dress.
