Last week we had our Czech fundraiser...It was beautiful. Our friend Marilee organized the whole event for our son and pulled the entire night off without a snag. There were 14 musicians who played the piano that night...all were wonderful and so very talented.
Our son opened the night with Valse by Chopin...later he and Marilee played a duet...A Slavonic dance piece by a Czech composer...It was almost five minutes long & really got the crowd going!
Our daughter played a piece called Carnival of Venice which was very sweet and whimsical....I am so proud that she just started learning piano this last year and has already learned to read music and play by ear as well as memorize songs...I can't do that.
The last song was played by our son...It was a piece he composed and has written and stored into his head...called Senza Parole which means (Without Words) in Italian...Our son knocked the socks off everyone and I am pretty sure there was not a dry eye in the building. It was awesome. The night was a success raising over $700 dollars to go towards his Czech trip this Summer...We are so very blessed to have all the support from our Church family. If I get a hold of any video footage or more pics. I will share later...
Have a great week!!!
