Thirty-five students of Mrs. Corine Maldonado from Starr Music Academy participated in the studio's winter recitals on Sunday, December 19, 2021 at the Roma ISD Performing Arts Center Auditorium.
Students age four to adult, who have been studying music anywhere from four months to over five years performed solos on piano, violin, viola, voice, and guitar. "Today, we are not only celebrating the fact that your children are learning to play instruments, but that they are willing to share this gift with others," Mrs. Maldonado told the audience. "It is not an easy task to perform in public, and the confidence that these children are building by learning to do this from a young age is so valuable."
Mrs. Maldonado wishes to thank the Roma Independent School District and Mr. Jaime Escobar and the Performing Arts Center staff for the generous use of their facilities. "It speaks volumes of the commitment of our community to music education and the arts," she said.
