Fête de Printemps: piano et violon

The piano students started the second part of the program. They played many beautiful songs: Lightly Row (folk tune), Claire de Lune (Lully), Ode to Joy (Beethoven), Chanson Comme ça (student composition), Musette (Anonymous), Christmas Secrets (Dutton), the theme from Swan Lake (Tschaikowsky) and Night of the Tarantella (Faber).

The piano teacher, Leah Neuchiller, then performed Fantaisie - Impromptu, Opus 66 by Frederic Chopin.

The Suzuki violin students performed two duets, Bourrée by Handel, and the Concerto in d minor for 2 violins - 1st movement by Bach accompanied on the piano by a parent volunteer.

Finally, Yasmin Craig Vitalius, Suzuki violin teacher, also accompanied on the piano by a parent volunteer, concluded the program by playing Sonata No.4 in F Major by Handel.

It was wonderful to see so many talented people on stage. The audience really enjoyed your performances. Bravo à tous et merci beaucoup!
