Virtual Student Performances

MERIT STUDENTS KEEP THE MUSIC GOING

While Merit School of Music’s brick-and-mortar school may be temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Merit students and faculty have come together online to keep lessons, classes, and performances going.

Whether it’s a young music student refining new skills at home, siblings just having fun playing their instruments together, or Conservatory ensembles working as a group to make something beautiful, the creativity, talent, and determination of our students is incredibly inspiring.

Enjoy this selection of some of our favorite virtual student performances to date. We hope their music can be a source of hope, inspiration, and connection for you, as it continues to be for us.
