The Piano Recital

Not long after arriving, upon a referal from the former owners, we found our new piano teacher locally. In fact, she lives two blocks or so away, perfect for a morning bike ride with the students tootling along to her home for their lessons.

There were the most amazing thunder and lightning showers the night of the piano recital. At the local auditorium, hail the size of marbles fell on the rooftop and the power went out briefly causing the backup lighting to suddenly shine on the piano player performing onstage, startling him for just a wee second.

Apparently in the east, the storms are something to behold, and we've been told the lightning bolts we've seen so far are nothing compared to the summertime shows in the skies. Yikes!

All in all, it was a lovely evening of piano, guitar and vocal performances.
