Instructors recitals are a regular feature of the school and these will be held at various points between Wednesday and Friday.

An informal ceilidh will be held on Thursday 23rd of June for all the students. This is a nice way for the teachers and students to relax and socialise together and to enjoy a mix of informal musical entertainment provided by the students. The ceilidh is held on campus.

Teachers Recital - Virginia 2010

In addition, on Friday 24th of June the instructors and other invited guests will perform at a public concert in the Armstrong Auditorium of Shenandoah University, Winchester, VA. More information about tickets etc will be available closer to the time.

Following the concert instructors, students and friends usually retire to Chillis Grill and Bar for some fun, food and relaxation.

A school photograph will be taken prior to this event for our website and we would prefer if all would wear Highland Dress. Copies of the photograph will be made available for students to purchase as a memento of the summer school on Sunday 26th of June.
