Play the Piano at a Nursing Home - 52 Weeks of Giving - Week 51

This week Sophia and Olivia participated in a piano, voice, and instrumental recital at Arden Hills Presbyterian Home. The nursing home is located on 27 acres that are wooded and adjacent to a lake. There are over 200 residents living there.

This is the second year that Sophia has been a part of the holiday recital, and Olivia's first year.  All the children performing in the recital attend the local homeschool co-op. 

Olivia played "Cat Walk" by Garcia and Sophia played "Sonatina, Op 39, No. 1" by Lynnes.

Both girls memorized their pieces and were able to perform them well without the sheet music at the recital.

The recital was well-attended with at least one hundred people. There were 26 pieces performed during the one-hour recital.
