1982 MV's Piano Recital

Saturday, May 1, 1982 found Mary Virginia participating in a piano recital.  I'd scan the program but (no offense, MV) it's not all that exciting.   The front says Celeste Armentrout Piano Recital 1982 and then there is a list of the participants and their musical selections.

MV's name is listed last – which might mean she was the most accomplished performer and she played Brahms – Rhapsody Op. 79 No. 1.

A timeline of some of the "2" year happenings:

HH in Junior Year of High School

I must admit, I have no recollection of the piano piece I played nor the recital or even where it was. :( Were it not for the program I would probably think it had not happened....sure don't remember any of the other students, although I studied with Mrs. Armentrout another year as I recall. Max Carr, the piano teacher at Wilmington College was too intimidating and I had no desire to spend my life in a stuffy practice room attempting to practice enough to please him.
