First performer was Andrew. He played "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and "Carol of the Bells". He played musically & beautifully!

The second performer was Teagan. She first played her solo piece "Sleigh Bells", then her family played "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" with her sister, Kinslea and her dad Eric! It was their first time!

They practiced together and had many rehearsals and they made it!! Congratulations!!

Next performer was Markus. He played two pieces for duet "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing", "Sweeter the Bells Never Sound" with his dad, Stefan. And for his solo piece, he played "O Christmas Tree". Their duet was so beautiful and Markus played with nice & gentle touch with dynamics for all the pieces. Congratulations, Markus!
