How to set up

If possible, have a projector in the back of your student and have it project a scene or place  from where the piece is from. This will bring a visual experience to your students and audience. When a particular student is done have the scene change to your next students location of where their piece is from. This will  truly bring your recital to the next level of awesomeness! 

Have Flag Banners if possible hang across the auditorium or on the walls. A simple but effective way for you parents to understand the theme
