Miss Julie

Congratulations to Miss Julie! While she was in NYC this past weekend, she took the time to play Mozart's Eine Klein Nachtmusik on one of the pianos in this program! She was even able to write her name in the book stating she was one of the many pianists to play on that piano! Miss Julie said she loved the whole experience but was a little nervous! She was surprised that the keys of the pianos were painted! Way to go Miss Julie!
