Music Recital in Rippey, Iowa on Dec. 9, 2018. Enjoyed by Many!

Janice Johnston hosted a very entertaining music recital was enjoyed by many on December 9, 2018.

Pictured with Janice are Gwen Hooper, Ethan Hooper, Joshua Sparks, Daniel Cerveny, Summer South, and Brogan Groves.

Janice Johnston presented a musical program featuring her five students, Ethan Hooper and Summer South, violinists; pianists, Joshuah Sparks, Daniel Cerveny, and Brogan Groves, as well as Gwen Hooper, a student of Sheilah McGregor-Pound, to an enthusiastic crowd of parents, siblings, grandparents and friends.  This is always an enjoyable, informal  gathering to listen to the students perform their music, some for the first time, in front of an audience.  After the recital, the students gathered around the piano and sang Christmas songs while the guests went through the line for the delicious meal that was provided.

Janice thanks the Friends of Rippey for having the piano tuned and for providing food and support for this program.  Also, thank you to Maralynn Rinker for the lovely tree and decorations and  to the City of Rippey Council for the use of the Community Room and support.  A special thank you to the families of Carson Griffith and Judy Lint for the piano.  Finally, thank you to the students, parents, and families for coming to lessons and practicing.  Merry Christmas to all!
