October YAPI News and Notes
The number of YAPI regulars is growing! This month Nicole Green returned singing and playing her original material. It is amazing how prolific this young woman is. Katy and Rory are always entertaining and they are growing as entertainers with each YAPI performance. Katy’s voice is beautiful and Rory’s playing compliments it well! Morning Glory is getting quite a repertoire of songs together including some originals. These girls harmonize really well together.
It’s always fun when people who have performed at YAPI in the past come back! Natalie Shanklin had not performed for a couple of years so it was great to have her back and hear how she had grown in all areas. Her voice is something not to be missed! Alanna Fisher also came back this month so it was great to hear her again. She’s a little shy and YAPI is a great opportunity to gain confidence and overcome shyness on stage.
I invite everyone back to the next YAPI, the first Thursday in November, November 4th! Let’s try to keep this level of participation going! It makes it more fun for everyone involved, and I’d like to serve as many Wimberley area youth as possible with this unique monthly community service event for youth.
