Spring 2017 Recital

Today is a special recital!

Kelsea Villanueva and Emily Goes are graduating and pursuing their dreams. The Villanueva and Goes families have raised students of such high quality & character!

Kelsea began studying piano with me in 2004. She's developed quick and light fingers that can play out fantastic ornaments. Over the years, she's participated in the Certificate of Merit, Piano Achievements, and Royal Conservatory of Music programs and passed her Theory Rudiments. She plays classical music and pop tunes from a chord sheet.

Emily began studying voice with me in 2009. She's developed an incredibly versatile voice with strong emotive subtleties. She earned the National Award for Level 8 voice from the Royal Conservatory of Music's program in the United States, the Music Development Program. She's performed with multiple local companies and Great America.

Both girls work so diligently - they've learned how to tackle any music task. Their attitude and approach to developing a skill will serve them in all sectors of life as they leap into their futures.
Brava! Kelsea and Emily. I truly love you!

Climb Every Mountain
So Long, Farewell

Climb every mountain
Search high and low
Follow every byway
Every path you know
Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
'Till you find your dream
A dream that will need
All the love you can give
Every day of your life
For as long as you live
Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
'Till you find your dream

There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say cuckoo (cuckoo, cuckoo)
Regretfully they tell us, but firmly they compel us to say goodnight
To you
So long
Auf wiedersehn
Good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long
Auf wiedersehn, adieu
Adieu adieu to you and you and you
So long, Farewell
Au revoir, Auf wiedersehn
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
So long, Farewell
Auf wiedersehn, Goodbye,
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye, goodbye---
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie,
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly.
The sun has gone to bed and so must I
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, goodbye,
Goddbye, goodbye, goodbye.
