"I've paid my dues Time after time I've done my sentence But committed no crime And bad mistakes I've made a few I've had my share of sand kicked in my face But I've come through
We are the champions, my friends!"
The recital was a hit, in other words.
We kicked off the performance weekend with our Performance Party at the studio. All the kids had the opportunity to play in front of one another and have a preview of the recital. Then we shared pizza and ice cream, and did some old-fashioned running around. It was a party of shrieking laughter plus sugar highs, which equals loads of fun.
The Performance Party run-through. Then on Sunday we traveled to Holy Trinity Parish in Decatur for our Spring Recital. The kids paraded in, full of excitement. Performer after performer played, and one by one, they all put another positive performance experience under their belts.
The much anticipated Giant Candy Bar Award.
The program was very diverse, from baroque to modern, including pieces composed by the performers themselves. There were also several duets, many performing duets for the first time, which turned out to be fun for everyone. Music together is better than music alone!
Can you sense my pride? My students continue to amaze me. Little fingers making a big noise. So I guess all there is left to say is, "Can't wait for the next recital!"
