My daughter takes piano lessons at Torrence Music Studio. They had a rehearsal last Saturday for the Annual music recital to be held at Memorial Baptist Church. Her teacher talked to us and told us that she should have given our daughter a much difficult song but they have to submit the song months before the recital and she did not know that Ms. Burrito will do really good. She said that next year, she definitely knows what piece she would give her.
We arrived early during the recital so the kids got the chance to go see the big squirrels feasting on nuts under the trees beside the church. It also gave us time to take some family pictures outside.
While we were seated on the pew and waiting for the program to start, Ms. Burrito told me that she is nervous. She even went to the restroom for the last minute. I know that she will do good but I understand how she felt that day as it was her first time playing with audience. To add to the pressure, she is the very first number.
We invited our neighbor family to come and watch. Lolo and Lola Fancher came and Sarah and Angie Howells came as well. The Howells brought Ms. Burrito a bouquet which helped her forget her nervousness for a while.
The program was beautiful, Ms. Burrito did not mess up a thing and she did pretty well. We went to the Mexican Restaurant, Chico Fiesta, after the program as a simple celebration. I will make a separate post about that. Below is the video that I recorded from my point and shoot camera. I forgot that I can't rotate the video so pardon if it is not how it needs to be, just listen to the song and ignore the picture lol. Her part starts after the introduction of the teachers. Enjoy!
