The fabulously talented mezzo-soprano Anna Egan gave her Junior Recital yesterday. As it happened to be the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, she chose an encore piece that was reputed to be played by the band as the ship sank: Nearer My God To Thee. And since she has a number of siblings who would do anything to oblige her, she was able to get some four-part harmony going on. Alas, the performance video died, but here is an encore of the encore. You know it's at my dad's house because the Christmas tree is still up in April.
(Anna, as faithful readers will know, is the cute one with the curl in the middle of her forehead.)
