Golden Valley piano teacher holds 60th recital

This music teacher's Golden Valley home is still filled with music, for the 60th year in a row.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The sounds of a cheerful brass trio filled Brookridge Avenue in Golden Valley Sunday afternoon.

Guests from near and far followed the tunes to Marilyn Deichert's home. There, on the front steps, stood Deichert wearing big glasses and a colorful pink suit.

The guests included her students, former students and neighbors. They were eager to attend too. This was Deichert's 60th piano recital.

Yes, Marilyn has been teaching piano lessons for 60 years. She was a professional musician. So was her husband. Her two sons are musicians as well.

She turned 93 on Monday.

"I love doing it. I'm still doing it and I'm going to do it until I drop," she said.

Bravo, Marilyn Deichert! Bravo!
