I could barely get through reading this article. My eyes watered up and the words were blurry. I have some idea of her mothers pride. My son has Autism and took behind the wheel driving last summer with Alexander Driving School. I cried then too.

Congratulations, Sage! I am so proud of all you have learned! My 18 year old daughter has Downs and she, too, loves to perform. Thankful you have such an awesome, supportive family and music teacher. Hopefully I'll get to hear you play sometime- keep up the great job!!!

Virginia Schweninger is the consummate "Ambassador of Goodwill." She and her entourage of young harp students have mesmerized Nelson County Rockfish Valley Seniors for several years with their pro bono publico Christmas concert performances.
We know Virginia's melodic and soothing music unites across a rather wide socio-economic, cultural and generational divides like nothing else can. It is a tribute to her talent that her music possesses healing power as well.

Pete - You have just taken my breath away with your amazing comment. Thank you so much. Nelson County is truly a magical place where the work of the angels is possible and encouraged. Haven't we all watched Sage dance at the Farmers Market ever since she was old enough to walk! What a joy and an inspiration she has been to so many! Stay tuned ...
