Area students perform in Piano Honors Concert
Ahna Thompson, daughter of Jenna and David Thompson, Audubon, and Lily Turman, daughter of Billie and Dave Turman, Detroit Lakes, performed in the Minnesota Music Teachers Association (MMTA) 79th annual Piano Honors Concert on June 14.
The concert was performed at the Minneapolis Convention Center Auditorium, located in downtown Minneapolis. Conductor for the event was Dr. Mary Kay Geston.

Seven categories, from Primary through Senior B, were represented in the performance of the piano ensembles. The ensembles were performed on stage with 20 grand pianos.
Ahna and Lily are students of Audrey Savig, Audubon.
