Proctor Elementary hosts music recital

PES music teacher Denis Andriscin held a music recital for her students at the Proctor Union Church Parish Hall on, Tuesday, June 5. Family and friends listened as the students showcased their talents.

Gwyneth Owen was the first on the piano playing Happy Birthday To You and I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing. Samantha Bates played four piano pieces which included Yankee Doodle and a duet with Andriscin called Princess Waltz. Elihu Harper, also on the piano, played Showboat, Jake In The Beanstalk and A Little Night Music. Madison Lee played two longer pieces on the piano including a duet with Andriscin. Rachel Moody and her sister Leah Moody each entertained the audience with solo flute performances. Sarah Varney played Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata from memory. Susan Atwood sang two songs including You've Got A Friend In Me. Madison Fetterolf ended the recital with several jazzy, toes-tapping songs.

Proctor Elementary School had to make cut to the music program this past year, which unfortunately meant that many students were unable to showcase their talents. This recital was Andriscin's way of letting her students show off all their hard work and shine in front of family.
