It was a black bow tie event - as all the young boys in the concert adorned one - and all the girls were dressed in the traditional black that is worn by musicians during a concert.
The line up of music for the evening included pieces from Dvorak's "New World symphony", Fiddle Tunes that made me want to tap my feet, folk songs - including "Ashokan Farewell by Unger, and Spirituals enjoyed with slides to bring reminders of the days gone by. The concert ended with an orchestra playing a rendition of several famous Revival songs from years gone by. My favorite in that line up was "Brethren We Have Met to Worship."
What a beautiful night we had - together as a family enjoying God's gift of music.
We also were blessed to have some guests come and join us for the concert. Miss Shelli drove up to see the kids - and made the kids' night with her appearance. Rob's parent's also joined us for the evening giving Zak someone different to sit next to for the program.
Our little one sat the entire time on our laps engrossed in the music being played in front of her. She is just itching to get started in music and will not leave the kids alone when they are practicing. She definitely wants in on the action!!
We ended the night with our drive home through the country and were greeted by snow falling gently from the sky. It was a perfect way to end a most enjoyable evening.
Trust you are taking in the high notes of your life. Thanks so much for stopping by - I am glad you did!
