Serata: An Evening of Musical Delights
We welcome music lovers, students and colleagues to this night showcasing the talents of our wonderful MRMTA members. The idea that our music teachers of the MRMTA are very talented and could offer an evening of music to our community in which they are featured was an obvious way to raise funds for our 100th Anniversary. It’s a fabulous evening of varied instruments, pieces and collaborations between colleagues; featuring duets, trios and quartets too!
In 2016, this successful event began as a fundraiser for our 100th Anniversary in 2019 when we will host the CFMTA/FCAPM Conference. The conference, held in Winnipeg, will welcome private music studio teachers from all over Canada and the United Stated. Titled “A Century of Sound Connections”, July 3 – 6, we will be celebrating our birthday and collaboration with sister organizations across Canada.
Students of our teachers are thrilled to see their teacher perform at this soiree. There are quizzes to answer and prizes to be won, and of course, the reception has its own appeal too. Last year, students performed in the lobby as guests mingled and bid on silent auction items. They really enjoyed this!
The event features a Wine & Cheese Reception and a Silent Auction. Fabulous prizes are donated by many organizations and communities as seen listed below.
