Wesbrook piano students host recital, earn awards
The piano students of Sharon Wesbrook performed in a spring recital on May 26 in First Lutheran Church.
Most students received certificates for performing in the MMTA State Ensemble Festival in the fall of 2009, and Ryan, Isaac and Anna Cihak and Chelsy Johnson received certificates for qualifying as finalist for the State Piano Contest.
