Christian, our resident Eagle Scout and Scottish Fiddler recently played the National Anthem for the Irvine City Council Meeting, July 12th. Mayor Kang recalled the young TEC student who showed up for the Irvine Day in the Park with the Talent Education Center: Suzuki Violin students in his cowboy hat and duds several years ago when Christian was much shorter. The mayor is always pleased to add one more community service pin to an Eagle Scout sash with merit bages on both sides of his uniform.
From the age of 6, Christian has been a student at TEC with Ms. Cynthia. Our Scottish fiddler chose the music that he performed which included "The Star Spangled Banner" and Butterfly, a Scottish Fiddle Tune. He has so many favorite fiddle tunes that it was not easy to choose just one for such a short presentation. He helped to start the meeting with his own interpretation of the National Anthem played with out an accompaniment.
I would like to thank Mayor Kang and the City Council for inviting students like Christian to perform on their agendas. It is always a wonderful experience for our young people.
