PROTON THERAPY INSTITUTE RECITAL
The community recital at the Proton Therapy Institute is open to those students who are at the upper-intermediate and advanced levels of performance. This recital is given for the patients and staff at the Institute and is a showcase of JMTA’s talent. Students may choose to play one or two pieces: however, due to a time limit, it is possible that only one piece will be allowed. Please send the complete information to Sandy Stewart on week in advance of the April 16 performance. The recital begins at 6 p.m. Each performer will receive a letter for their school authorizing one and a half hours of community service. -Sandy Stewart
