CONCERTS FOR KIDS! "THE CHOICE"
Sunday, Nov. 13, 3 PM
Tickets are on sale now! "The Choice" is the ultimate talent show where YOU will be the studio audience and our "celebrity" JUDGES will include John Lennon, Taylor Swift, and Johann Sebastian Bach. You will also see familiar faculty faces among the "contestants." This live performance will combine age-appropriate music appreciation, lively costumed theatrics, and a few unexpected antics. Intended for ages 5 and up; all ages welcome. Written and directed by WCMS' own Adriana Ausch. $5 general admission; tickets on sale at the school or online here.
FACULTY RECITAL WITH JOHN KRAMER
Friday, Nov. 18, 7:30 PM
Piano faculty member John Kramer celebrates the release of his new CD, Meditations, with a solo piano recital of his original compositions. John's works fuse an eclectic range of musical styles from baroque to Debussy, from Gershwin to minimalism. The program will feature a refreshing blend of his newer works with personal favorites from his compositional library. Please join us for pre-concert cocktails at 7:00 PM. Free admission. Nichols Performance Hall.

35TH ANNIVERSARY TIME MACHINE
Looking through our archives at 35 years of WCMS history, some of the earliest photos are of music classes for young children. These classes have become a proud legacy for WCMS. For over 25 years, our children's classes have included Dalcroze Eurythmics instruction, which teaches an understanding of music through rhythmic movement, ear training, and improvisation. Our certified Dalcroze teachers have kept WCMS at the forefront of children's music education, and this year WCMS is offering the first accredited Dalcroze Certification Teacher Training program to be approved by the Dalcroze Society of America.

Online Registration is Coming Soon!
After many months of hard work, planning, conference calls, and caffeine breaks, WCMS will launch its new online registration system in December. In a couple of weeks, we will contact all current student families and describe how the new system will work. We're thrilled to offer this new functionality to our student families.
