We were invited to Elli Krandel’s senior recital, where she played piano and sang. A four-year chorus student, she is very talented. I wish Elli had selected some more classical pieces — a few too many showtunes for me — but she performed them well, and she is a very lively, engaging performer.
The Beautiful Land / Roar of the Greasepaint
Candle on the Water / Pete’s Dragon
Just Around the Riverbend / Pocahontas
A Change in Me / Beauty and the Beast
Forrest Gump / Forrest Gump
In His Eyes / Jekyll and Hyde (duet w/Laura Miller. Laura really is good, too)
I Like Him / Drat! The Cat!
Bill / Show Boat
My Father’s Song / Sense & Sensibility
There’s More to Me Than You / Jessica Andrews (fun girl power song!)
When I Fall In Love / Victor Young
Only Hope / A Walk to Remember
Happy Girl / Martina McBride (w/backup singer WHS senior Clare Grechis)
Elli is a happy girl. We wish her the best in her college adventure!
