On Sunday, May 20, 2018, at the beautiful Unitarian Universalist Church of Studio City, founder and piano instructor, Linda Wehrli of Pastimes for a Lifetime hosted the annual Spring Student Piano Concert.
This year’s show included classical and contemporary solos performed by 11 of her students:
Aidan C. • Cameron C. • Chris K.
Ascher C. • Ryan P. • Adela M.
David G. • Ryan B. Michael G.
Norbu L. • Mason S.
The student performances can be enjoyed on Pastimes for a Lifetime’s YouTube channel.
Linda’s longtime friend in music, Mrs. Caroline Coward performed the duty of Master of Ceremonies, introducing the students and their pieces.
Linda’s hubby and fellow pianist and composer, Barry Michael Wehrli graciously videotaped the performance in addition to assisting with set up and clean up.
After the concert, students and guests enjoyed delicious gourmet empanadas and desserts by Chef Roger X. Navas-Balladares, B.A of Savory Roads Catering along with platters of fruit, veggies, delicious dips and chips and beverages generously donated by students’ families. Performers and staff received artisanal dark chocolate musical notes by Anita Burgoyne of Custom Chocolate Designs, a lovely way to end a beautiful concert!
We would like to thank the students, families, guests, and staff for making this concert possible.
P.S. From Linda: “Many thanks to my office manager, Jessica Sanders for her expert admin assistance with the programs, certificates of merit, meet and greet, photography, set up and clean up!”
