Live Music is alive and well in Costa Rica, thanks to the monthly Coffee House talent nights at Monteverde Friends School. Clowns, Michael Jackson, piano, ukelele, storytelling (riding a shark down the river), bluegrass, Cat Stevens, Spanish love songs, jokes, violin, even Swedish folksongs… we had it all.
Performers ranged from 7 to 87 years: students (from 4 schools), Quaker meeting members, school teachers and parents… thanks to everyone who got on stage to make us laugh and feel inspired. Thanks also to the grade 9/10 students and teachers, who prepared pizza, silent auction, and made the event not only fun for us but a successful fundraiser for their class trip.
Enjoy the slide show of performers below, and watch for us to post some video clips soon.
