The Winter Recital is always a big day for Guitar Shed. It marks the end of the year and a chance for our students to showcase what they have been working on before we take our Winter Break. Since the recital is typically close to the holidays, relatives are often in from out of town and everyone is flush with the holiday spirit. Our first Winter Recital was back in 2015 at Red Light Cafe. At that time, Guitar Shed had 3 teachers and just a handful of students. In the years since then, we have been hosted by new venues, like City Winery and Eddie’s Attic, added over a dozen stellar teachers to the Shed family, and seen hundreds of incredible student performances. The end of the year always brings with it a chance to look back on the year and recognize growth, as well as to look forward to a fresh start with new goals in the coming year.
While this year’s Winter Recital will be a little different than those of years past, we hope that all of those same sentiments of family, joy, growth, and optimism for the future will be present as we broadcast our students’ virtual performances. We look forward to another great recital and another great year ahead!
