Ever been this inspired by a birthday present?
By Arlene Anderson
Gram gave me an accordion on my 10th birthday. I was intrigued and happy with it. But can I honestly say it changed my life? Um, no.
In contrast, the guest performer at DSSO’s January 31st, concert, Joyce Yang, received a piano for her 4th birthday. By the time she was 10, she had already won numerous national competitions and was enrolled in the School of Music at the Korea National University of Arts.
Maybe I should have received that accordion a little earlier in life… Ah, no matter. I plan to fully enjoy the fact that this young woman has made the most of her talents and is about to share them with us!
