Exploring in the Backyard - Mei Ono

Uploaded On:  Thursday November 14, 2013

Mei Ono, age 9 from the Irvine Yamaha Music Center, performs her original compositions "Exploring in the Backyard." This selection, inspired by imagining her 21 year old cat playing around in the backyard as a kitten, is comprised of three parts: "Roaming Around," "Taking a Nap," and "Catching a Bird." Ono is accompanied by violinist Dian D'Avanzo for this performance. The Junior Original Concert is a program through the Yamaha Music School where students perform their own original compositions. This uncut, unedited performance was previously recorded at the 2013 Western Junior Original Concert on June 16, 2013.
