Zion Lutheran School in Beecher held its third hymn recital on May 18, with 14 students from the school’s piano program playing solos and duets in the church sanctuary, according to a release from the school.
Piano lessons are offered during the school day to Zion students in grades one through eight, the release said. Instructors Rebecca Juhl, Rebekah Meissner and Christena Estby also participated with several musical selections.
The selections included “O, Worship the King,” “Holy, Holy, Holy” and “Go Tell It on the Mountain,” the release said.
Those who attended also had the opportunity to select Lutheran hymns to sing during a “Hymn-Sing” halfway through the recital, according to the school.
“The hymn recital gave us a glimpse of future church musicians. The students practiced with diligence and used their God-given musical talents to the best of their ability,” Juhl said in the release.
Zion piano students include Hannah Hammer, Katherine Moldenhauer, Tayiah Scanlan, Trey Boecker, Anthony Sebastian, Catherine Juhl, Alexandra Moldenhauer, Steven Adam, Jacob Brouwer, James Radtke, Marissa Sebastian, Joseph Adam, Elizabeth Latino and Titus Rivas, the release said.
The next performance for many of Zion’s piano students will be for Be Art Momence from 6 to 9 p.m. June 6. They will serenade art patrons as the patrons view the art galleries in downtown Momence. This event is free and open to the public, according to the release.
