The Community School of the Arts at the University of Connecticut will be hosting an OPEN HOUSE on Monday, September 10 from 5:30-8:00 p.m.

Visitors will have an opportunity to experience classes, ensembles and meet private lesson students and families. The schedule begins at 5:30 with Meet the Treblemakers and open rehearsal, which highlights CSA’s children’s choir directed by Amanda Hanzlik and Jan Castle.


The Treblemakers program is a premier Kodaly-based choir, which performs two-, three-, and four-part repertoire in a variety of genre including classical, folk, jazz and world music. The Treblemakers will host their own Winter and Spring concerts, and will perform at other venues during the year including Mansfield’s Festival on the Green in September.


CSA’s pottery classes for adults and children are very popular, and you’ll be able to visit the studio and see pottery wheel demonstrations, talk to instructors and veteran CSA students. CSA teaching artist Barbara Timberman will also be on hand with an activity from her very popular children’s art class: All Things Art.


Suzuki Coordinator Gabe Remillard will discuss CSA’s Suzuki program for violin, guitar and cello, and Suzuki parents and students will also be available to demonstrate and talk about the Suzuki method.


CSA also offers private instrument and voice lessons, and many of the faculty will have their studios open for the evening and be on hand to speak with anyone interested in taking lessons.


You can hear more about all of  CSA’s programs and meet CSA Director Topher Logan and his staff at a reception following the Treblemakers rehearsal at 7:00 p.m. in the Vernon Gallery area.
