A RE-DO Kind of Weekend!
This past weekend was one I would love to experience again! It was a "violin" kind of weekend! Renee's school is a "sports" centered school, although it has lovely Christmas programs and such. So many talented students. However in our four years at the school, this was the first "recital" that has been planned and executed. Jamaica has a rhythm/musical culture, lots of musicians, dancers and talented performers but sports take the forefront. This sometimes leaves no platform for the artsy students. Thanks to the music teacher at Belair and the cooperation of the administration, A SHOWCASE OF THE ARTS, was scheduled for last Saturday evening. It was phenomenal, so good in fact, the principle is thinking about an encore performance! Singers, Trumpeters, Violins, Guitars, Recorders,Piano, and a Drum solo were showcased. Renee played "Concerto No.5 in D Major, Op.22,3rd Movement" and she did it successfully. Daddy and I were so very proud of her.
