We have a new tradition among my grade 7 and up musicians to have our annual performance at Uptown Bill’s instead of the concert hall. This concert took place on Saturday, March 29, 2014.
All photos are by the multi-talented Brandi Janssen.
Annie and I playing Christopher Twigg‘s ‘The Forgotten Chateau’ arranged by Kevin Burke and Cal Scott.
Maia playing ‘Brilliancy Medley’ (brilliantly, I must add).
Fenna and Joe presenting Alastair Fraser‘s ‘Stirling Castle’ set. Fenna also beautifully danced a slip jig (‘The Butterfly’) and a reel (‘Fergal O’Gara’s’). Fenna’s dance teacher is Tréa Champagne, the director of Champagne Academy of Irish Dance.
David, Madilyn, and I playing ‘Old Joe Clark’.
David and I playing ‘Whiskey Before Breakfast’ and ‘Off to California’.
Norbert and Liza playing ‘The Golden Anniversary Waltz’.
Beth and I playing Edgar Meyer‘s arrangement of ‘Star of the County Down’.
What a fun day and a marvelous venue!! I’m such a lucky teacher. A million thanks again to Brandi for the fantastic photos.
