Another spring concert has brought our KinderGuitar community together. Students ages 5-17, some veteran performers and some first-time performers, prepared solos, duets, trios, and even some quartets for an eager and excited audience of parents, siblings, friends, and family. Performers played folksong arrangements for multiple guitars, rounds, Spanish music, music from both the classical and romantic periods, arrangements of piano music, and even some familiar hits! As usual, given the size of our expanding Bay Area program, we had several concerts.After all of these years doing this, I am always inspired by these courageous children who are willing to share their art with their community.
