As we began to emerge from the pandemic to the “endemic”, it was a joy to see various activities, that had been put on hold, alive and well again! Kudos to Aurora Music Teachers Association “Achievement Day” participants: Jenna and Bo Winn, and Austin Eichelberger! They performed for a judge and took music theory tests, and did very well! The event happened on January 29, 2022, and another Achievement Day is tentatively planned for this fall, hopefully involving more of our studio!
Congratulations are also in order for Rachel Carlsen and Jenna Winn, who competed in their first piano competition, the Colorado Music Teachers Rising Stars, a statewide event, on April 9, 2022. I’m very proud of their hard work in preparing for this event. Rachel performed Mozart’s Sonata in C Minor, K. 457, movement 1, and Chopin’s Nocturne, Op. 37, No. 1. Jenna performed Sonatina, Op. 36, No. 1, movement 3, by Clementi, and Ballade, Op. 100, No. 15, by Burgmuller. Bravo!!!
