Prep Center Showcase - June 12

The Preparatory Center for the Arts of the John J. Cali School of Music

Showcase 2010

Saturday, June 12, 2010 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm in Chapin Hall.

This event is a special opportunity to open our doors to the university community as well as aspiring future music educators, prospective students and their families, and area music teachers interested in finding ways to augment their students' musical education.

The Preparatory, fondly known as "the Prep" by its over two hundred and thirty students, staff and faculty members, has been serving the musical community since 1976, offering pre-college as well as continuing adult students opportunities for private instruction, music theory and musicianship classes, instrumental and choral ensembles, and music therapy sessions.
