Ms. Keyser, the creator of the Harmony Road Music course, was on hand for the festivities. The students then proceeded to the elephant area to sing “Happy Birthday” to the famous elephant. Westside Music School students participating included Katherine Andrews, Shreeya Bukka, Marina Case, Andrew Hough, Hannah Langer, Hayley Meshkin, Meiling Miller, Deekshan Saravanan, and Jack Syverson, along with their parents and teachers Aron Bernstein and Claudia Reinsch.

From the Chorus

"Your kind words mean a lot to me and I appreciate it. I’m grateful to have had you as my piano teacher and will continue to integrate music throughout my life. Although my schedule seems hectic and cluttered, I will find time for music. There is a piano in every hall at OSU, so you’ll probably find me there once in a while. Again, thank you!"
