Spring is the season of new life, and many plants begin to bloom and grow. The colors of the flowers are very bright and cheerful. Spring is a time of new beginnings, which makes it one of the most popular seasons of the year. Spring is also the time when nature begins to show its colors again after being dormant for so long during the winter months.
The concert took place in the beautiful Szustra Palace in Warsaw. On a cool spring afternoon, on the 10th of April 2022 we met in Warsaw’s historic Szustra Palace on the Spring Concert. It’s our special holiday because it’s the aim of our students and teachers work to make the prepared repertoire sound on the stage in the beautiful scenery of the Palace.
The soloists were announced by Julia Lewiuk. The Music School Spring Concert is an annual event for students in our author’s music school. The event is free to our students and families of students. We are excited to continue our series of musical events.
The concert began with small Chuchu, who played a miniature from the violin pedagogy collection entitled “Fellows.”

We think performing at concerts is good for students
Students at Unisono Author’s School of Music, are encouraged to attend music concerts to perform and gain stage experience. Performing in front of an audience is a great way to improve musical skills and test yourself in a situation other than a controlled lesson. It is also a great way to network with other young musicians. Frequent performances in front of audiences also help students feel more comfortable on stage, and have a positive impact on future public speaking skills as well. Students attending a music school should not only learn theory and composition, but also perform at concerts.
Concerts can introduce students to a variety of musical genres and help develop their musicality. Additionally, students at our School often have the opportunity to perform as part of a duo, or in a larger ensemble. Participation in concerts also can help shape future career goals for students majoring in music.
