Students of Judy Galetar presented their closing recital for this spring.
Four of them, Christian Pepper, Kristine Agpalo, Elise Cawthon, and Anna Bardwell, just performed for a judge in the National Guild of Piano Teachers, all earning high scores and compliments from the judge who listened to them in Kilgore at the Presbyterian Church Social Hall.
While three of them could not be at the local recital that evening, other students did come and perform for the audience of families at the Murphy/Payne Room in the Panola College Library.
Besides Elise Cawthon, her younger brother Drew, Rachel Monroe and Zane Bush performed their memorized pieces. Certificates from the Junior Festival, held at Tyler Junior College in March, were given out, and a trophy for three years of superior ratings was awarded to Elise Cawthon.
Congratulations are due to all these performers and thanks to their supportive families.
