Younger Daughter had a fiddle recital in Spokane last Friday. Her teacher and his wife have a small music school, and all the students participated. Fiddle is their specialty, but they also teach guitar, piano, and mandolin.
Here are some of the kids warming up in the hallway behind the stage (it was held at a high school auditorium).
A chaos of cases. I thought this photo turned out pretty neat.
Here's Younger Daughter, nervously warming up by herself at the end of a hallway.
Here are the parents who run this music school, Andrew and Deanna, performing with their talented brood of homeschooled kids (three boys, one girl). (A family friend is playing the base.)
At last it was Younger Daughter's turn. She was scared spitless but played beautifully. What a kid!
