Today was S9’s very first piano recital. She has performed solos on violin before, but this was the first time at the grand keyboard. She played at the Butler Institute of American Art’s north annex, which happens to be the very same building where we take art classes. It was wonderful to be able to play in a familiar setting.
The recital was very intimate and short; only 8 kids played and it lasted about a half hour. DH and O7 joined us in the audience. We sat right in front of Miss Nelya and her husband.
S9 played a piece called “The Crawling Spider” by Faber. While it is a simple piece, she incorporated all of the dynamic changes and made it a fun performance. Her final chord had a little hint of her typical S-style ending flourish. Congrats, S9!
