On Sunday we went to Suffolk, VA for a pair of outreach concerts with Mrs. Morton's studio. The kids played beautifully in a country church and then in a retirement home. Thank you to the church ladies who made us lunch, and to Mrs. Morton for putting together such a lovely program!
Sadie got to play along for two songs. The first was Minuet 2 from Suzuki Book 1:
Then Lully Gavotte from Suzuki Book 2:
Benny and his buddy Stephen share a stand in their youth orchestra, and also share a cello teacher. Here are the "Bad Boys of Cello" with their teacher, performing Minuet in G by Beethoven as a trio:
"The Prayer" in ensemble, a song made popular by Celine Dion:
And finally, "Hot Canary," a crazy-to-play but super fun violin lark:
A great way for the kids and me to spend a Sunday. :)
