My studio is on Christmas break for the next couple of weeks, so it will be pretty quiet around here as well. The Christmas recital last Thursday was such a wonderful time! For those of you who didn’t get to tune in live, you can still access the archived videos on the Christmas Recital 2010 Channel. We had a few glitches with the setup, so we missed the first couple of students on the live stream, but the majority of it got covered, thanks to the expertise of the guys running the equipment! Here’s a group photo from the occasion:
And somehow, my students managed to put together a surprise gift for me that I will treasure forever!
For three months they’ve been conniving coordinating to make this happen – and it did! I was completely clueless. The gift was a beautiful framed portrait of all of my students, accompanied by a smaller black and white of the same portrait with each student’s autograph on their photo. Plus, a dozen of my favorite roses! It was a great end to the year! In addition to taking some time off to do other things this week and next, I’m also excited to do some planning and preparing for a New Year in the studio. It will be exciting to see what 2011 holds!
May each of you have a blessed Christmas!
