Kudos to selected violin students of Wendy Waggener and Bill Alpert’s violin studios who spent a beautiful and enjoyable fall afternoon sharing their talents! For many it was a day of firsts; Edison Adler’s very first violin recital, and Libby Salomon’s (not pictured) first opportunity to perform from memory. Also this was the first strings-only recital for the Alpert Studio, joined by students and families from Wendy’s studio and Foothill Suzuki Strings. Many thanks to the families who made it possible and to Janet Noll for her artistry and professionalism at the keyboard.

P.S. Voice students: We have set aside the date of Dec 1 at 4:00 p.m. for our fall recital. Please make a note of it!
