Come and make music with us at Mayfield!

Our Mayfield students love to make music and we want to share this enthusiasm with you! 

This free workshop will bring middle school girls together with Mayfield Conservatory for the Arts students for a fun, interactive day. Middle school is such a time of anticipation. We want to be a part of showing girls the joys of pursuring and developing their talents in a supportive environment.

Vocal Concentration

Vocalists will join with our nationally acclaimed, award-winning Women’s Ensemble, students who believe they sing better because they are such close friends. Under the guidance of Choir Director Andrew Alvarez, our vocalists are looking forward to blending their voices with yours! 

Instrumental Concentration

Instrumentalists will play side-by-side with our orchestra members, crafting tunes that play to their strengths and talents. Our Mayfield musicians play a diversity of instruments under the direction of Instrumental Director Christin Hablewitz. 

Event Details

The event is free and lunch will be provided. Plus, we will showcase a mini-concert for your guests at the end of the day! Please share this information with your middle school classmates, teachers and your music or choir instructors. Space is limited!
