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.
