A Joyful Christmas Recital... Happy Holidays!


On Saturday, December 9, our students brought the sounds of the holidays to residents at Sheboygan Senior Community on County Road Y. We had folks from young to old in attendance, enjoying the music that the kids had prepared. Everyone had warm drinks after each of the two recitals that afternoon.

Maiya Van Zeeland, one of our piano players, was the artist who made the beautiful drawing for the recital programs. Well, she didn't know it was for the program when she gave it to me as a gift, but gave permission to use it for the programs- thank you Maiya! Its was just perfect.

What a fun afternoon of Christmas cheer to usher in the holiday season! Learning music is good but sharing it with others is a very important part of why we learn music too!
