Welcome Winter — December Newsletter!


Vivaldi Music Academy invites you to join us in the beautiful Italian city of Venice for a once in a life-time performance opportunity at the historic Santa Maria della Pieta – better known as Antonio Vivaldi’s Church! The recital will be held from 6 – 8 pm on Thursday, June 23rd.
Registration will be at 9 am on Saturday January 16th on a first-come first-serve basis by phone, email or in-person. A non-refundable fee of $250 for the first student and $100 for each additional child will be due at the time of registration.

We’re excited for our Venetian Adventure in the Summer of 2016 – we hope you are, too!
