YAPI May Notes
A couple of things were particularly exciting about May YAPI.
First, several adults and children from the community came
out specifically to hear the YAPI entertainment which means
people are really interested in the young talent in the area!
Second, we welcomed two new performers: 9 year old McCoy Genfan
from Martindale (which means word about YAPI is traveling!)
and 19 year old Sharon McCully. McCoy did some great readings
of some of his original writing and Sharon sang some original
songs. Because there were not very many performers we were
able to hear several songs by Dylan Meek (14) on piano. We
also heard from Ali Engeman on piano.
