Open Forum: Thanks for practicing

Gregory DeTurck has been playing the piano since age 6 for 23 years with varying amount of hours a day practicing.

Scott Lykins has been playing the cello since age 13 for 12 years practicing an average of three hours daily.

The combined hours these two have practiced their instrument to put on Sunday’s Lakes Area Fabulous Fall Season Concert is probably well over 30,000 hours. Remember the old adage “Success is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration.”

Why are they so marvelous? Practice, practice, practice. We in the audience are eternally grateful for those hours of dedication and work. The concert was amazing.
