Spring Piano Recital 2019: Music from Around the World

We held our annual spring piano recital this month! We had about 120 guests and 24 performers.

This year the theme was "Music from Around the World". 

Folk and patriotic songs from various countries and cultures were represented by each student, which made for a special and educational experience! There is so much wonderful music in this world, and it was a privilege teaching these songs to my students.

I am so proud of all who performed, from my first-timers to my well-seasoned performers! You all did a wonderful job.
