Piano students of Jean Boothe held their annual year-end piano recital at the Summerland United Church on June 10.

 

Showcased during the recital were 19 talented and dedicated young musicians playing 40 pieces in Baroque, Romantic, Jazz, Popular and Ragtime styles.  Encouraged by their teacher before the recital to set aside concerns about making mistakes and to focus instead on celebrating their joy of music with friends and family, they all played with flair, musicality and excitement.  At the end of the recital, each student was invited up to the stage and acknowledged for their individual successes playing in recitals, community outreach events, music festival and exams throughout the past year.  Held as a fundraiser for the Summerland Food Bank, the abundance of donations left in their wake matched the generous spirit communicated to the audience in their performances.
