Kennedy Honors, Midori

June 6, 2021, 8:36 AM · The Kennedy Center Honors are tonight at 8 eastern on CBS and streaming on Paramount+. Hillary Hahn and Yo Yo Ma will be performing among others.
Just got the ok to say publicly that our kid will be appearing (briefly) as part of a group honoring Midori and Debbie Allen. Soloist Randall Goosby, a dance troupe, water, Paganini and music from Fame.
The segment honors Midori and Allen’s outreach programs to underserved communities.

June 8, 2021, 9:11 AM · LOL! Me too! I was too worried about that to enjoy the music.
Edited: June 9, 2021, 10:27 AM · To pull aside the curtain, the music performance was pre recorded and the kids were handed VSO’s for the taping.
