June Wrap-up: A Recital and Party!

We had a great recital last night at the Owen Sound Harmony Centre! Fifteen students performed from both my studio and the studio of my friend Irene Enns. The ages ranged from 5 to adult, and the pieces performed spanned four centuries of music. 

There were several highlights including the duets, Irene's senior students' exam-ready pieces and my students' own compositions from our compilation The Seasons. Everyone enjoyed playing the beautiful Yamaha grand piano and the spacious setting.
After the recital we continued the celebration with drinks and goodies...thanks Irene for all the food. I think the students worked up a great appetite as we had nothing left at the end of the night!

The composers finally got to take home their compositions. Take a look at our YouTube playlist for some highlights from this special book. I think our project was a great success and can't wait to pick a new theme next winter for our second book.

Some students are now done for the summer while others continue to build their skills or prepare for exams. I look forward to working with you over the summer as we work towards new exciting goals!

Thanks for a great year,
~ Jennifer
