Flowers for our star cellist.
The final bow with OYS.
Rachel with her directors, Mr. Gregory Ferguson and Mr. William Detrich.
Rachel played in her final concert this afternoon, after six years with the Olathe Youth Symphony. The music was wonderful, but it was a very emotional day. We've watched seniors cross the stage every year and talked about how Rachel would do that one day. Today was the day. My baby was called up to be recognized with the rest of the seniors. I am very proud of her and have enjoyed so much all of the music she has brought into our lives. Practicing the challenging music and going to rehearsals each week hasn't always been easy, but in the end I think she is glad she persevered. Bravo Rachel!
