After Sophia took her seat, Hannah took over passing the programs out to those who were arriving last minute.
Our daughter is the piano teacher for several students.
Jill and our other children began piano lessons at either age 4 or 5.
Here she is at one of her first recitals.
Thank you, Mary, for the years of teaching them!!
The theme for the evening was
"You're a Star!"
Each child was given a large star cut-out. It was their "cheat sheet" with the name of the piece they would be playing on the back. As the child went up, they would say their name and the number they would be playing. Then they would place the star in a bucket.
Sophia played "Christmas Day Secrets" by Dutton
After all the children played their pieces, Jill had Sophia draw out a star from the bucket. The child's star that was drawn was the winner. Well, the Mommy and Daddy were the winners. Because they are the ones who have to make sure the kids practice!
The winner was given Starbucks coffee!
Allegro by Suzuki
Of course, you bow after you're done playing!
Each child received a bag of Starbursts as a gift for all their hard work!
Afterwards, several men had to move the piano off stage.
Claire and Hannah danced on stage.
We went to the kids' home for dinner.
Sophia loves the piano and promptly sat down to play more.
Jill had invited us to dinner.
She's such a good cook!
On the way home, we were treated to a beautiful sunset!
There were storms to the north.
God, You are a STAR!!
What a wonder You are!!
