An Announcement


Ohayo, students of the Classical Institute of Music! This is your principle, Kishimata-san. I trust all of you have worked hard over the weekend. I have some news for you all. This year will be slightly different from the previous two; we will also hold a concourse.
First of all, I’ll start with the most important subject; in which everyone one of you will have to part-take in, in order to proceed to the next stage of music; your year-end Exams at the beginning of May (in 1 ½ more month(s)) . You will be tested in Music Harmony, Music History during certain time periods, Musical Composition if you take the extra course and your own instrumental exam, whether it’s keyboard, string, or woodwind. The last subjects of the Exam will be testing your sight-reading ability and your aptitude to connect with the music, for example; the composer’s style, meaning, and his message. Remember, there isn't just one correct answer, because everyone has different musical relations.
After the Exams, at the end of May, we will hold the concourse. We will choose the participants accordingly, with the best musicians participating. This year, we are limiting the contestants to twelve applicants. First, second, and third place will have the opportunity to partake in a two month long music camp from July to September; receiving comments and master classes with many of the world’s prodigious instrumentalists.
Lastly, at the end of June, all of you will perform a chosen composition(s) of your choice. I advise you to start preparing your piece(s) now. This concert will display your achievements and the approaches/attitude/ and the feelings you possess for your selection and instrument. We will have several guest artists visiting and playing. Do appreciate the time you have left to prepare for your Exam, the concourse, and the Concert.
After all this, you will be assigned several new pieces by either by your choice, or your instructor’s. Please do remember to select a Baroque, a Classical/Romantic, and Contemporary piece along with a masterpiece of your choice, NOT your teacher’s.
Saved for the very end, I will now announce the several artists who will have demonstrated their skill to be able to play with our orchestra:
1) Kira Ahika
2) Etou Kaminkisha
3) Mari Tsuzuki
4) Lili Kishimoto
5) Osaki Yamashika
Thank you for your participation and passion for music,
Arigato!
Kishimata

    Am not sure that this qualifies as a poem, however I'm sure I'll be out voted by some. Fair enough (Report) Reply
