Last Saturday, five of my cello students had the opportunity to play at the Haskell Library and Opera House which is literally situated on the border between Newport, Vermont and Stanstead, Quebec. There is actually a black line indicating the border on the floor passing through the room in which we played! Music Without Borders is a concert series intended to bring children together from the United States and Canada and to teach them about different types of music and various instruments.
My students ranged in age from age six to fourteen and we played solos and group pieces from Twinkles to the Gigue from the first Bach suite. This was a wonderful way for them to prepare for our Christmas recital.
