Ann Arbor Open will hold its annual Coffee House Recital Fundraiser from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2, at the school, 920 Miller Road. The event is open to the public.
More than 200 students at this nontraditional music event will offer listeners an eclectic mix of solos and ensemble pieces on three parallel “stages” throughout two hours of performance time, while audience members wander between the stages and enjoy refreshments.
The younger students will generally be in larger vocal ensembles (singing 1-2 songs each), while some older (7th-8th grade) students will perform a solo, duet, or trio that they are preparing outside of school for the upcoming Solo & Ensemble Festival.
