Thanks to the students of Modesto Junior College's music department for two wonderful holiday concerts.
On Dec. 6, advanced piano students held a free recital that featured contemporary, classical and romantic selections by Chopin, Bach, Schumann and other great composers. These young pianists gave incredible performances.
Then Friday, MJC's Concert Choir and Chamber Singers held a program of traditional carols plus modern seasonal songs by Frank Loesser and Mel Torme and an "African Noel."
Both evenings were fantastic. It brightens your spirit to see such accomplishment, fun and appreciation for music by these talented young people.
Thanks, too, to their instructors for making the season brighter. Bravo!
