5 pm Sunday is the Piano Cottage Adult Recital.
Congratulations to some super inspiring Piano Cottage Students whom we will celebrate at the Piano Cottage Adult Winter Recitals this Sunday March 24, 2019 at 5:00 pm: Linda, Annetta, Amy, Brenda, Dennis, Pam, Aaron, Karen, Amanda, Michelle, Steffen and Marilyn.
Much gratitude to the amazing Genthe family is opening their beautiful Heritage Hill home to this group of adults students on piano, vocalists and guitar and who will come together to share food, wine & their latest performance-ready piece (or almost-performance ready!).
Special guests: We are excited to be joined by two accomplished (adult) musicians in The Piano Cottage community: Dr. Robyn Hubbard (vocalist/dancer) and Mr. Jason Doublestein (Guitarist-Vocalist-Trumpeter-Keyboardist) who were once students of many instruments and art forms, and now are professionals in the medical and dental world while still continue to protect space in their lives for music and theater performance while inspiring younger generation and the community around them through their commitment to music, family and their professions. How do they find time? We'll find out.
Writer Kevin Goodman:
"Why don’t we have recitals any more as adults?" My 6 year old just had her first recital. It’s seen as a growth moment, a rite of passage and the culmination of learning something new. But it’s also just a milestone. She sang a song and played a little song on the piano. While she did wonderfully, it doesn’t mean she is done. It just marks a milestone, and there will be many more to come.
So why don’t we adults have recitals? There are so many things we learn as adults. So many actions that we are practicing and doing for the first time. Could we have a parenting recital? Or a job interview recital? Or even a standard recital? Go learn to sing. Learn piano. Take up a new craft and show it off.
There is no point in finally being an adult if you don’t get to keep learning. And now you have the freedom to learn whatever you want! Nobody is telling you to go practice your piano. Nobody is telling you to read up on basket weaving. It’s all down to you.
So we would like to formally invite you to try something new. Practice, practice, practice. And then go show it off. Have your own recital, or better yet form a recital group. A team of people bonded together with nothing more than the quest to learn and a forum to show it off! Bravo"
Let's Go have a Fun Recital Together !
