Anna's Senior Recital - pics and videos

I finally have the post that y'all have been waiting for!

Rehearsal night before the Senior Recital...

Practicing, practicing and more practicing

And laughing :)

Hurry, the recital starts in less than an hour!!

We had a wonderful attendance - around 250 folks came out to support Anna!

It was an outstanding program!

"Am I supposed to come in now?!?"

The finish of the first movement out of 3 movements from
Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 9

Grace, Melody and Anna had fun playing Piano Trio No. 2 in C Major by Brahms

Buk :)

Concerto in B-flat Major by Handel accompanied by a string ensemble!

The String Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20 by Mendelssohn was amazing!
Thanks to our wonderful friends for their hard work!

Wonderful job, y'all!

Nearer, Still Nearer arranged by Dan Forrest - beautiful and God-honoring

"It was a good concert!" Our videographer, Caleb, did a really great job!

Anna gave a little speech for each of her teachers, parents and wonderful
accompanist Grace for all the help and support they have given through the years.

Anna is so grateful to the Lord first of all for His working in her life spiritually,
and also for His gracious gift of music that He has given her.
May God be praised for all He has done!
