The winter piano recital for students of Lynda Lybeck-Robinson took place on Sunday, December 1st, in the high school auditorium. 22 pianists performed the songs they had been rehearsing for months on a stage festively decorated with a tree and holiday ornaments. The recital began with a chorus of 'Wee Play Music' on the bells performed by five young students.
Many students chose to play holiday or Christmas themed songs along with a few familiar classical pieces. Additionally, three students played pieces written by Lynda Lybeck-Robinson herself. Lybeck-Robinson recently received the high honor of having her music published by the Hal Leonard Corporation. Her volume, titled "Alaska Sketches," includes eight intermediate piano solos meant to capture the striking impressions and scenes of life in Alaska. The final song in the collection, "Williwaw," was selected by the National Federation on Music Competitions (NFMC) as a recommended piece for early intermediate competitions on a national level for the years 2014-2016. The volume can be purchased at online music venues internationally.
