SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.VA. - It wasn't the 100-plus people in the audience that made Patrick Weikle nervous Saturday as he sat down at the piano. It was the audience of one sitting beside him. Weikle, a senior piano major at West Virginia University, was one of three students who participated in a master class with world-renowned pianist Leon Fleisher at Shepherd University. "I was terrified. I never get nervous for performances, but when I walked up, my knees were literally shaking," Weikle said.

BOONSBORO - When Dondi Ellis had to choose a musical instrument to play in middle school, he decided on the piccolo. His music teacher said that the piccolo's high-pitched sound could break glass, and Dondi thought that was cool, he said. But the piccolo isn't an instrument for beginners, so Dondi started playing its larger cousin, the flute. Six years later, the 17-year-old junior at St. Maria Goretti High School, practices his flute four hours a day and hopes to attend a music conservatory after graduation.

The activities at Renfrew Institute's 24th annual Youth Festival might have been designed for children, but they seemed to put smiles on many adults' faces. “It's just a great day to be with nature, do activities and be outside,” said Olivia Hammond, of Waynesboro. She brought her children, Preston, 7, and Savannah, 4, to Youth Fest for their third time. They sat on Renfrew Park's lawn for a “community circus” featuring children who participated in a master class with Ben Sota of Pittsburgh's Zany Umbrella Circus.
