Peggy Brunner says: "After the Christmas holidays I contacted the Butler School of Music at UT to see if there was an Grad student who might be willing to perform at the retirement home where I live. This young lady responded immediately in the most gracious fashion, came and played a breath-taking piano recital for the residents here. So when I asked if she would consider coming to our Club, again the most gracious, positive response. She LOVES to play, and she is a stunning artist!! Take time to relax and enjoy a lovely young lady making beautiful music!!"
