Last night my daughter had her last professional musical performance at Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda. It's a beautiful venue and the musicians played spectacular. If you visit Southern California this library and the grounds surrounding Richard Nixon's birthplace is so beautiful and rich in our Presidential History.
This particular room which is an exact replica of the East Room at The White House has the most exquisite chandeliers.
Here is part of the percussion group that is in the Wind Ensemble.
Each musician had a beautiful red rose for their mothers.
The Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra received a GOLD rating at the Heritage Festival in Philadelphia this past week.
Here is my beautiful daughter with her fantastic music teacher, Mrs. Carnahan who every year takes the music students to Festivals around the country. Madison's year they played at the prestigious Carniegie Hall in New York! She has taught my daughter to LOVE and appreciate music and I can't believe how much she has learned in just the 3 short years she has been in the program. It is bittersweet for me as she will be leaving the program in a couple of months as she moves on to High School, I do hope she continues to play the piano in our home.
