This weekend Grace had her first violin recital. She has been taking private lessons for a year. Her teacher, Chelsea, is also homeschooled and just graduated. Grace played Minuet by Bach and Can-Can by Offenbach. She did such a great job.
This was not only a recital for the students, but it was Chelsea's senior recital.
We listened to approximately 2 hours of the most beautiful music. I could have listened all day. It all began with Chelsea's dad starting to play Song from a Secret Garden by Lovland on the piano. A couple of minutes into it we suddenly heard a violin from the rear of the church-Chelsea slowly walked down the aisle playing the violin while her dad continued on the piano. I almost cried it was so beautiful! Next her 6 students took turns playing 2 pieces each. I'll list below some of the other pieces that Chelsea played along with friends, teachers and her family. She and her 2 sisters (who play violin and cello) play in a quartet along with their dad (piano).
Serenade leise flehen meine Lieder-Schubert
Minuet from Quintet in E-Bocchernini
Entrance of the Queen of Sheba-Handel
Brandenburg Concerto, No. 3-Bach
Concerto in A minor- Vivaldi
I Dreamed a Dream-Schonberg
Psalm 42-Appalachian folk melody
I wish I could offer a sample of each one for you to hear, but I have no idea how to do that! You'll have to just find them on your own. Sorry!
