Ian and Legg played a duet arrangement of Beethoven's “Rage Over a Lost Penney.” Gabi and Rhea started the program off with a duet by Melody Bober, “A Frightful Night.” Maya included a fun “Tarantella” piece by Nancy Faber. Morgan, a first-year student, played “The Witch Who Lost her Broom,” and dressed the part. Kaley and Rhea played duets accompanied by Legg. Elizabeth played a piece from the Harry Potter movie.
