preparing for Christmas at YONA

As Christmas draws closer, so does the evening of the students' first concert with their violins. On December 18th, the kids will perform two carols on their instruments, and will entertain the crowd of invited friends and family with a sing-along.

I hadn't visited the school since the students received their real instruments, and I was shocked by the amount of progress they had made in only a short amount of time. Their posture, confidence, and ability to play in unison completely belied the fact that they'd only been in possession of these violins for a few weeks.

It was a joy to witness, and I'm really looking forward to documenting the upcoming festivities.
