Cohen Home

Today was our first time at the Cohen Home this semester! We got to see some old faces and meet some new ones. Instead of our normal prepared program, we decided to have another impromptu recital. Our recurring guests Joey and Pablo joined us again with their saxophone duets and we played pieces by Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, and Vivaldi, and we ended with a medley of Hanukkah songs to kick off our holiday season. Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend! Next performance we'll be starting our holiday program!

Back to Sunrise...with a twist!

We had the pleasure of performing again at the Sunrise of Johns Creek! It's our third time at the home this semester, so we hoped to change it up a bit for the residents. Instead of performing our typical program, we decided to try a recital-style performance for the residents instead. We had several solos and ensembles perform, and we got to showcase some of the wonderful talent we have in the club. I don't know when we'll have another chance to make a performance like this, but we hope that the residents enjoyed the change and enjoyed listening to some new music. :)
Our program included Dvorak's American String Quartet, Vivaldi's Concerto for Four Violins, Monti's Czardas, Telemann's Canon in Unison, and some 40s songs on the piano. Special shoutout to alum Noah Johnson for coming to play with us! 
Noah Johnson, Amy Zhang, Vivian Cheng, and Rachel Kim perform Dvorak's American String Quartet.

George Pan, Lauren Ha, Mariana Rodriguez, and Noah Johnson perform Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. 

Amy Zhang plays Monti's Czardas. 

We'll be back to Sunrise during the holiday season on Nov. 29 at 2 PM. Our next performance is in a couple weeks at the Cohen Home at 3 PM.
