Middle School age through adult students performed at an area nursing home. The school age students performed their pieces from memory and the adults preferred to play while reading sheet music.
One freshman from Overland High School who performed a Beethoven Sonatina & Schumann’s Wild Horseman received lots of appreciation from one of the nursing home residents. During the silent time between performances by other students, she would ask him eagerly “Are you playing yet? and “Is it your turn yet?”
It was very touching to witness the interaction of a senior citizen with a high school student.
