Members of the Little Bach and Junior Philomel clubs performed recently at the Woman’s Club of Warren.

That included Emma Peterson with the Little Bach club as well as Cricket Branstrom and Joseph Miller part of junior philomel.

“Joseph was the first performer on piano playing ‘Linus and Lucy’ by Vince Guaraldi,” Cathy Peterson said. “He ended with ‘I Will Leave You Notes’ by Patrick Watson.”

Peterson — on flute — then presented “Siciliano” by Bach and ended with “German Dance” by Beethoven.

Branstrom performed Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.”

Peterson said three previous members of the clubs returned and rounded out the performance.

Peterson performed “Over the Rainbow” while Stephen Ashbaugh presented “Nocturne” by Billy Joel and “An Unseen World” by Paul Cardall. Pianist Kristine Peterson performed Bach’s “Invention No. 8” followed by “Gymnopedie No. 1” by Erik Satie.

“The final pieces were piano duets,” she said. “Kristine and Cathy Peterson played “Joyful, Joyful” by Beethoven and the final performance of the afternoon was a piano duet performed by Joseph Miller and Vera Finger, “Serenade” by Schubert.”

Peterson said that she’s one of the advisors for the club, along with Vera Finger and Kathy Neal.

“Meetings are held once (a) month from September through May,” she explained. “Students in grades 6-12 who are interested in joining may contact (me) at cjpete4@verizon.net for more information.”
