Dueling pianos

Twin sisters Sarah and Hannah Lilley performed on keyboard Friday at Winter Wonderland held by CASA of Chaves County in the parking lot of the main branch of First American Bank. The event was a fundraiser for CASA, which assists at-risk children who are going through the court system. The 13-year-old girls performed a Christmas medley that included “What Child is This?” and “Carol of the Bells.” Sarah and Hannah are students of Mike Lively, who has been teaching piano in the area for about 35 years. “I enjoy allowing students to perform in different venues,” Lively said. His students compete at Texas Tech University and Odessa and Midland colleges, where they have earned many first-place awards over the years. “This year I have around 50 students. At this CASA event, 15 of my more mature group of students performed a number of selections, some with soundtracks, some solo only. It was a very good experience for them and great opportunity to serve the community musically.” (Timothy P. Howsare Photo)
