The twins passed their National Diplomas in piano Thursday! Each performed scales, chords, arpeggios, ear training, sightplaying, a Bach Prelude and Fugue, full sonata, first movement of a piano concerto, a Chopin piece, 2 other big romantic works, and a contemporary American piece for memory. Phew!
Tonight they had a lovely concert for family and friends. It was held in their church, ladies made homemade tortes and used the pretty china plates. The girls wore formal gowns and played selections from their huge repertoire lists.
Then as a special treat they played a very first recital piece, each a hymn arrangement, and ended with a duet. It was such a big day, after such a big day, and I have such a big day tomorrow and Sunday. Peace!
