On June 9, the talented and dedicated piano students of Jean Boothe filled the Summerland United Church with music.
Young musicians played a wide variety of styles including Canadian compositions, baroque and classical selections, jazz standards and popular theme songs. Performing for an appreciative audience of over 60 family members and friends, the pianists shared their favourite pieces playing with confidence and flair. At the end of the recital, each student was praised for personal successes during the year. These acknowledgements included exceptional performances in Royal Conservatory exams and the Kiwanis Music Festival as well as performing for community fundraising events.
As a special treat, each young musician was presented with a plant from the Windmill Garden Centre and gift certificate from Summerland Sweets.
