My three older kids and three of their friends at today's regional Suzuki Celebration Concert. They had only 10 minutes with their accompanist before the performance. The accompanist, unfamiliar with the piece, set the opening tempo much too fast, and the kids gradually reeled her in. I thought they did very well and handled that little glitch very professionally. This is a very fun piece to play and they enjoy it a lot. They first learned it at the SVI last summer, and we decided to keep it in their repertoire and keep polishing it because it's such fun and such a crowd-pleaser.
