School Concert

Yet another event to mark the end of the school year, the annual concert. This year was a little different. The BIG district art show was cut from the budget (don't get me-ah---going), fortunately our art teacher decided to do the 'own' thing with each school. Only catch, it had to be at evening time, and what a switch! Well, the art show extended a invite to the music teacher, then another to the instrumental teacher, and all in all, the function had a good turnout.

Here is Madame playing her saxophone, I can tell when she is nervous, she was. What quickly happened was the 2 flutes, a drum and a trumpet lost step, the players all told her, ON STAGE, that thanks to her lead they caught up. Truth be told, saxophone RULES!

Belting out....America the Beautiful. I had to adjust the darkness of these pictures because I've not got use to the new camera, especially in a gymnasium setting. Madame also sings with the choir.


Here she is doing a duet with a friend while singing Peace on Earth. The song brought many tears to many parents eyes. The Elementary has a great group this year.....and next, the principal noted that sentiment in the beginning of the concert and the music teacher reinforced it after the closing act. I think she might of been moved too! Just the awards presentation left, *sigh.* C & G Design

Madame is a a beautiful, well rounded, talented, and lucky girl..(to have you for a mom!) I remember those days with my kids and they were a lot of fun. I have many on video tape and we watch them and laugh and cry today. Now my daughter is going sky diving and videotaping that!! That one scares me!

Hi Kathleen, we posted minutes apart! Some, she takes after me. I don't have her passion for music like she does. She plays piano too. I'll have to get it on video soon as I figure out the sound!
