Piano Recital

On Friday, the girls had a piano recital.  The recital was held at our church in the chapel.  It's fun to see the girls play...and to hear all of the other students that Jami teaches since we know them all (although we don't know Desiree well.)  This was Gabby's first recital and she was nervous...but you couldn't tell...she marched right up to the piano and played with confidence.  I was really proud of her.  She played "Zoo on Saturday" by Mary Leaf and "Kids Following the Leader" by Claudette Hudelson.  She only worked on her songs for a couple of weeks, and she wasn't required to memorize them.   Ella was one of the few kids who remembered to introduce herself and her songs.  She played "Mini Tocata" by Eric Baumgartner and "Feelin' Good" by Robert D. Vandall.  Michelle played "Hayride Hoedown" by Glenda Austin and "Desierto de Atacama" by Wynn-Anne Rossi.  All three girls did a great job.  Michelle and Ella will be playing the same two songs at Piano Federation in two weeks.  It is the first year they will do piano federation.
