Two Keystone fifth-graders performed last weekend at the Musical Arts Center of San Antonio's Music Fest 2019, at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.

Ariana performed a vocal piece, "Bright," by McDonald and Sierota, and made famous by Echosmith. She has been selected to perform three years in a row.

Meanwhile, Shaumprovo delivered a piano recital and played "Avalanche (Op. 45, No. 2)" by composer Stephen Heller. 

To perform at this event is an accomplishment. Some 273 students auditioned for a slot in the lineup, and only 112 were selected to perform at Music Fest 2019.

Great job, Ariana and Shaumprovo!
