Six of my younger students performed for the residents of Sunrise Assisted Living this past weekend.  After a lot of schedule changes, we were happy to be there, and the residents were happy to have us!  The recital opened with the National Anthem.  One of the gentlemen asked if they should all stand.  LOL  From there the music ranged from a spooky, well-performed Halloween selection (see previous note about schedule changes) to Jingle Bells, from Classical to Rock 'n Roll.  The kids were great.  The youngest performer, 7 years old, asked if she could play her own composition.  I admit, I was hesitant, I didn't know what to expect.  But she really wanted to play, and what a great job she did -- you could hear the Christmas bells ringing!  After performing, we shared juice and cookies with our audience.  All in all, a wonderful respite from the pre-holiday rush!
