The annual spring showcase will be on Sunday, April 29th. If you have siblings participating, showcase tuition for each additional student will be $50 for the 11:00 and 1:30, and $60 for the 5:00 and 7:30. This is to assist with additional staff, performance fees and more. These showcase sets will be focused on full band performances. All students participating in one of these shows will need to attend rehearsals between 4:00 and 9:00 on Saturdays, April 21st and 28th. These rehearsals are mandatory for all students participating in bands and ensembles. Please be sure that students are available for the entire showcase as song times can not be moved or changed after March 1st.
Rehearsals will be held at Hellhound Studios at 1605 Coach Street in Rahway for students participating in either showcase. A rehearsal schedule will be provided for all students participating approximately 4 weeks before the first rehearsal in order to accommodate scheduling and to provide any pertinent details. Should there be any issues with scheduling, or if you need us to make any scheduling considerations, please contact us asap so that we can keep that in mind. FIRST TIME PARTICIPATING STUDENTS MUST ATTEND BOTH REHEARSALS.
Students participating in the 11:00 or 1:30 showcases may be asked to come into a lesson time rehearsal, or may have another student come into their lesson time for one or more rehearsals. Rehearsals will be coordinated by the administrative staff along with teachers. Songs for the 11:00 and 1:30 performance are limited to 2 1/2 minutes in order to accommodate participating students. Some songs may be shortened or adjusted for the time limit.
If you are unsure of what showcase your child will be scheduled for, please reach out to us directly at email@example.com, or call or text 908.967.0458.
We strongly request making seating reservations for Crossroads. In order to make reservations you must contact the restaurant directly prior to April 22nd. However, we recommend contacting them as soon as you know your showcase and party size. Please let Crossroads know which showcase you will be attending. There is limited seating so we strongly recommend contacting them as soon as possible. This allows the restaurant and the waitstaff to arrange tables and seating to accommodate as many people as possible. Please call them directly at 908.232.5666. Valencia Music does not coordinate reservations between families and the venue.
Students participating in the full band showcases may also be invited to participate in the main stage at Spring Fling and/or Garwood Rocks. Spring Fling is scheduled for May 6th, and Garwood Rocks is scheduled for June 3rd. Not all bands will be asked to participate, but please indicate on the sign up form if your child is available to participate.
As these performances are expected to be shorter than previous showcases, we do ask that families stay for the entire performance. We are doing our best to allow for each showcase to run no more than 90 minutes. This will give beginners a chance to perform for a more diverse audience, and it will allow for advanced students to show less experienced students what they are working towards. If students must leave prior to the end of the performance, however, please let us know ahead of time, as well as the venue so that they may reassign your seating if necessary.
Please contact administration directly if you have any questions. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 908.967.0458
