Castor Violin students host recital/’hootenanny’

Delightful musical event was held at Castor Long-Term Care on June 15th

To honour of our Prairie-Pioneer Heritage, Violin Teacher Carol E. Ries opened a recital held at Castor Long-Term Care on June 15th with old-time barn-dance favourite polka Soldier’s Joy.

Then it was the budding violinists’ turn to pick up their bows, while their teacher accompanied on piano.

Jessica Boizard played lively toe-tapping The Cowboy and a lovely classical melody called Andante in C Major Op. 22 No.1 by Edward Elgar.

Chantel Green played favourite folk songs Mary had a Little Lamb, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and famous fiddle tune Bile ‘em Cabbage Down.

Tegan Younger played Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony Ode to Joy theme, French lullaby Playing Ball on the Stairs and Royal Conservatory of Music repertoire Pony Trot.

Rousing Sing-a-long fiddle-&-spoons She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain — complete with ‘Yee-Haws’ — rounded out the ‘hootenanny’ component of the event.

Light refreshments and mingling followed the music.

Proud relatives (from younger sibling to great-grandmother), school-friends, and long-term care residents provided lots of appreciative applause and compliments to the budding violinists.

A good time was had by all!
