Providence Prairie's Summer Music Recital

Nearly 150 guests, friends and family gathered to hear the practiced musicians perform a variety of music on June 6th as Providence Prairie hosted their 4th annual Summer Music Recital at the First Christian church in McLeansboro. Each year, the McDaniel Family hosts free summer and Christmas recitals for their music students. Excitement filled the room as 33 of Providence Prairie’s current students performed in this special presentation made beautiful by each pupil’s diligence, hard work and dedicated practice.

The McDaniel Family opened the day’s event with a duo of vocal acapella songs. Student performances consisted of musical arrangements on piano, guitar, violin/fiddle, bass guitar, banjo and mandolin. Both adult and youth students interpreted a variety of compositions ranging from bluegrass venues to classical and Broadway. The recital entertained its attendees in an elegant and formal venue, dotted with some light and impromptu moments.

Light refreshments were enjoyed following the afternoon’s event.
Providence Prairie has been providing private music instruction in Hamilton County for the past 7 years. You can learn more about private music lessons offered by the McDaniel Family at Providence Prairie on their website at providenceprairie.com.
