Piano Students Lead Sing-Along at their Recital, December 15, 2016

Students of Janice Johnston lead the audience in a sing-along at their recital on December 15, 2016 in the Rippey Community Room. Piano Recital a Success! Forty people of the Rippey Community were given a musical laden piano and violin recital on Thursday evening December 15. The 6 students of Janice Johnston demonstrated their musical skills as well as an oratory reading. Parents, grandparents, siblings, and friends gathered at the Rippey Community Room for the event. They were greeted by two of the students who opened the door welcoming guests and distributed the programs. Each student introduced themselves, telling their age, and a bit about their family. They played traditional Christmas songs such as “Hark the Herald”, “Oh Christmas Tree”, and “Silent Night”. A non-traditional but beautiful and appropriate song was “Happy Birthday, Jesus”. For those who can recall their children’s music lessons, “The Cuckoo”, “Brother John”, and “Chopsticks” were also played, sometimes in a duet with their teacher. Midge Vannatta played sing-a-long songs at the program conclusion, “Joy to the World” and “Away in the Manager”. All who had gathered joined to sing. The above photo shows Midge, Janice, and all the students as they had just completed the group sing-a-long. The students under the guidance of Mrs. Johnson had made chocolate crinkle cookies, traditional cut out sugar cookies, ginger cookies, and peanut butter stars. These were served with season punch following the recital.
