I was so happy to have all of my students perform their best and that they moved “forward” in their pieces. For many, it was their first recital and for Erica, Rachel, Amy & Maggie is was their last recital with me. I will post a few pictures from the past when they were little girls and not young women, but I am getting ready to head to Europe with Utah Chamber Artists where I will visit Mozart’s birth place and Beethoven’s house in Heiligenstadt. I reminded my students to be like Beethoven and not to give up when things may seem unsurmountable or when challenges (in Beethoven’s case, deafness) would allow us to quit.
Erica earned her 45-point cup through the National Federation of Music Clubs.
Brooklyn’s mom (and my friend from college), Jackie performed Aquarium from Carnival of the Animals and two duets with me.
