It’s that time of year again! As the semester winds to a close, all of the ensembles that I have been rehearsing with for the past few months are preparing for their end-of-year concerts. I, personally, have 4 concerts in 3 weeks, and the madness kicks off tonight! I’ve provided below a list of the concerts I will be participating in, as well as dates, times, and locations (all locations are located at the University of Miami). If you’re not in the area, you can still listen in; all of the concerts have live audio streaming! The name of each ensemble is linked to the page at which you can listen to the streaming audio! Streaming starts 30 minutes prior to the concert time.

Enjoy the concerts, and may the next few weeks find you relaxed as the semester winds to a close (for both you student-folk and teacher-folk!).
