Carson, Growing Up, Still Playing Piano

The first video shot with the new camcorder was of my 14-year-old great-nephew, Carson, as he sang with his community Youth Chorale. He also had the opportunity, during a break in the singing, to play two Gershwin pieces on the piano. 

He had played these pieces in a music competition for students in Indiana schools and had earned a gold for it. Those competitions are limited on seating; and we, as Carson's extended family, hadn't been able to be there to see him compete. So it was a treat to have this opportunity to see him perform.

Anyway, I'm posting the video of the shorter of the two pieces that Carson played that night. I hope you enjoy it.

We're pretty proud of the kid.


  1. You should be proud of him. I'm glad you had the opportunity to see him play (and sing).

  2. I can see why you are proud of Carson, Linda! He is very good!

  3. He is certainly a very talented young man.

  4. A very talented young man, I hope he stays with it.

  5. Linda, I was quite surprised to see how much Carson grew up, he's a big boy now. The piece he played sounds quite difficult, well done. You can be justly proud of him.

  6. It was great that you were able to see this video of him.Carson is a very talneted boy.

  7. George - Carson and his brothers and even his parents are always on the go with activities, so we don't make it to everything. But I'm so glad I was able to make it to this one.

    Thank you, Linda.

    Thanks, Ruth.

    Steve - He's talented in many areas of the arts. But piano came first, and I'm glad to see that the other activities haven't caused him to lose interest in it.

    Petra - I know! It's amazing to me how tall he's grown. At age 14, he's taller than both his parents. That piece sounded pretty difficult to my non-musical ears, too.

    Thanks kindly, Margaret.
