The Annual MEAP Recital
At the end of each school year, typically in May or June, MEAP presents a free public recital for our scholarship winners to allow them to showcase what they’ve been working on. This is an important requirement for the study grant as it is one of few opportunities most students get to prepare and publicly perform a solo piece in a formal yet friendly atmosphere. The variety of instrumentation, styles and repertoire always make for a very enjoyable recital and it is the highlight of MEAP’s year.
In 2020 and 2021, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we had our first ever MEAP virtual recitals. Students submitted videos of themselves performing their recital pieces which were assembled into a video to be shared with friends and family.
