I started playing the French Horn in 5th Grade. It was the beginning of my school musical career. From there, I would continue playing in band through 12th Grade. I also sang in both Women’s Choir and Chamber Choir. In addition, I played the piano and sang with a small group from my church.
I enjoyed the music. I loved the concerts. So, you can imagine my delight at attending Christian’s Fifth Grade Chorus Winter Concert this year. We missed last year’s concert, due to having three different things on that same night. But this year it worked out and I’m so glad that it did.
Christian’s music teacher, Mr. Frederick does an incredible job with the kids. He also goes to my gym and is in all of the classes that I take, so I’ve gotten to know him even more through the past year. And he’s pretty awesome all around.
As for the Fifth Grade Chorus? They were amazing. There were well over one hundred kids singing tonight.
As I sat there proudly watching our son, I thought about all of the concerts that I had been a part of growing up, and all of the hours my parents sat and supported my sisters and I and our musical endeavors. It kind of made me look forward to more years of Winter and Spring concerts for both of our kids.
Over all, Christian did a great job. He also proudly rocked his bow tie, with confidence.
My favorite song of the night was when the chorus sang “Angels We Have Heard on High.” It was a beautiful arrangement and the kids did wonderfully.
A huge congrats to all of the fifth graders and to Mr. Frederick for a fantastic night of fun songs.
Afterwards, we celebrated with this sweet girl and half of Manorville when we stopped by The Yogurt Cafe. It was the perfect way to end the night.
