Memories of Melvin Avenue Elementary School

By David Kemp

Our sixth grade picture was taken in front of our newly built auditorium.   A few days later we held our graduation ceremony in that building.  There I performed three classical piano pieces:  Mozart Sonata in C Major, Fur Elise, and Clair de Lune.  I can still hear the applause but I do not remember who else performed that day.   Does anyone remember?
I continued playing classical music and giving recitals in the San Fernando Valley and I was a member of the Senior Orchestra at Sutter Jr. High.  When I was in the eighth grade I remember playing Ritual Fire Dance at a recital.  Then, in the ninth grade, I quit the piano for no good reason.    

Does anyone else have memories they would like to share?
