Family Travels

July has been a month of many travels.
We started out with a trip to Ohio for a piano
performance with the ladies.  Everyone got to
go on this trip but Jonathan and Matthew.

It's always exciting to get to perform on matched
pianos that are dovetailed as they should be for a duo :)

They began with a suite for piano four hands
assisted by their trusty page turner, Christopher.
You'll notice he is concentrating just as hard as
they are.  Page turning is never an easy job!

The ladies are very relaxed after the first piece--
Christopher is thinking about what's coming next.

Next up was a two piano piece which required both
Christopher and Benjamin for page turning.

It was a great performance!  Christopher and Benjamin
were very relieved that it was over :)

The epic page turners….
Yes, Benjamin is now taller than Christopher :)(

The ladies were awarded a master class with
the international piano duo Anderson and Roe...

…and with the duo themselves!

One of the best parts of the duo festival was that their
coach of many years came to hear them perform.

She has been such a source of encouragement through
the years and the ladies are very thankful for her!!
