Happy day after Thanksgiving, everyone! Some call this day Black Friday, a day for saving beaucoup bucks at the shopping mall; I prefer Ebony and Ivory Friday, an extra day of piano playing with no specific agenda, just the joy of making music for all the family to enjoy.
Speaking of joyful music, our post-Halloween recital was a Big Hit! Thank you to all who participated, including Naomi, Michael, Radar, Josie, Anda, and Reese. Each of you worked hard to learn your pieces, even while I was on vacation. I am so proud of you! Pastor Deb of Centennial United Methodist Church was especially moved by your performance and extended an invitation to play something appropriate at the Candlelight Tour of Historic Houses of Worship on December 26. Let me know your interest.
In lieu of lessons over the holidays, the Frederick County Music Teachers Association will sponsor a Holiday Recital on Saturday, December 28, at 2:30.at Homewood at Crumland Farms, 7407 Willow Road, Frederick. Mark your calendars now. Registration deadline is December 7. Please fill out Video Authorization Form for this one. I am hoping everyone will participate in this event.
Enough of me pecking at the computer keys. Each of you can get back to Ebony and Ivory Friday and make a joyful noise on your piano. I’ll see you all this next week, when we’ll start to polish your holiday performance pieces.
