good player for certain. almost as good as I was at that age smile

However, the piece she is playing is not nearly as old as "taps"....it is a 60's Italian piece "Il Silencio" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_Silenzio_(song)

Taps "history" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taps http://www.west-point.org/taps/Taps.html
