What a wonderful year of piano! Thank you to all our students who worked hard all year and put on excellent performances at our annual Holiday Mini-recitals! Please enjoy these photos from the mini-recitals. At the end of this post, for your enjoyment we are including a sweet little video of an early-December rehearsal of our Dance of the Reed Flutes duet. (We were unaware until midway through the piece that we had 3 little dancers helping us out!)
Our kitties were very much a part of our mini-recitals this year! Mystique made herself comfortable for each and every recital, in her “reserved” seat!
Mystie was also on hand after recitals in case anyone got cold and needed a warm kitty…
The seldom-seen Terre even made an appearance!
Éowyn supervised the treat-table…..
And here are our proud students after their awesome performances!
And then, the yearly Pickle Hunt!
Finally we all relax and have some treats to celebrate our efforts!
And how did we celebrate our week of excellent mini-recitals? You guessed it! Friday, December 18th, 2015 – Opening night of Star Wars: The Force Awakens – we were there – wearing Star Wars apparel, of course! It will be a day long remembered….
And now, here’s a little video of us rehearsing Dance of the Reed Flutes. We had helpers in making this a true ballet, but we didn’t even know it until we’d been playing for a while! Enjoy!
We hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing holiday, and a happy New Year!
