Cello Recital

Last night was Rachel's cello recital.  Last year, Tim and I were not able to be at her recital, as it was planned after we were scheduled for a conference in South Carolina.  

This year I was able to be there, and I am so happy that I was!

Rachel played four pieces last night - two with the accompanist Anna Demme, and two with her teacher Yolanda Mott.  The two played by Rachel and her teacher were written by her teacher!

 Rachel was playing "In Dreams" from the Lord of the Rings Soundtrack.

 Yolanda also played.  This song is from the movie "The Mission."

 Rachel, her teacher, Yolanda Mott, and their accompanist Anna Demme.  We are thankful for these ladies who are so encouraging to Rachel with her music.

We are proud of our girl and thankful for the friends and family who came out to hear her!  It meant so much to Rachel that you came Lorenzo family, Keeney's, Pastor Mike and Jenny, as well as Kay and Nate, and Lindsay and Joseph, and of course, Grandpa and Grandma who support all their grandkids in their endeavors.

Tim and I are grateful that the Lord allowed us to be able to buy her a new cello.  She was so ready for a full size (she had been playing a 3/4 size still), and one with such beautiful tone.

Rachel, we are so proud of you, and love watching your gift blossom!


  1. cello .. is my favorite instrument.
    thank you for sharing videos. :)
    i can only imagine how proud you are
    of your daughter - and how wonderful it
    is to gift her with a new cello!

  2. She plays so nicely. I love the sound of a cello. I think I told you before my dad played the cello and I took lessons in school but it didn't last more than a year or two.

  3. Must get to the PC! "Clouds Over Scotland" sounds so romantic...

  4. Beautiful! Sweet and soothing music! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. So, so beautiful!! What a blessing to be able to make such beautiful music...and to hear it!!
