bringing music to the streets: jane austen piano party


What happens when a cute vintage shoppe, two Jane-Austen-loving pianists, and thrifted bonnets meet? A Jane Austen Piano Party! A big thank you to Sara at The Lady Jane Shoppe for giving us a platform to bring the music of the time (and wonderful soundtracks from the movies) to the streets of Harrisonburg. Introducing: the "Bonnet Sisters"!
