We went to see his last choir concert tonight. I say “last” because choir isn’t mandatory in 9th grade and while he’s been in choir since 4th grade, he’s decided to pursue other interests next year instead which is fine. That being said, I do love a good choir concert so was very excited to go and see his this evening. We stopped for a quick picture in front of our beautiful purple tree and then were on our way.
The 7th graders sang first. They sang a medley of songs that lasted about 18 minutes which was impressive in itself. My favorite part was seeing our friend Lennon sing in person. He’s quite the talented young man and actually, the son of our amazing dentist Dr. Sal Lotardo. His entire family is quite musical and he was outstanding. Also, if you ever need a great dentist, then Dr. Sal and his office Bella Smiles is for you.
After the 7th graders finished, the 8th graders made their way onstage. When I looked back at this picture and saw this face, I laughed.
Because it’s always been the face he makes when he isn’t particularly thrilled to be doing something. He’s made that same face ever since he was little, as evidenced in the photo below. It’s funny that even though he’s 6 foot tall, in many ways, he’ll always be my baby.
There’s a bit more of a smile.
The concert was great. The 8th graders sang two medley’s. One was from the musical “Cats” and the other was “Hamilton: A Choral Medley.”
This would be Jeremy, enjoying the concert, but secretly wondering what was up with all the songs about cats, haha.
I loved the Hamilton portion of the concert. These three did a fantastic job on their solos.
And our dear friend Kiera was just amazing! Fun fact, she was in my preschool class when I taught years ago, and has also been a part of our youth group. She is such a talented and beautiful young lady and we absolutely love her.
Shout out to Mr. Robson. Goodness knows, it can’t be easy to get Jr. Highers to be passionate about music, but he did an outstanding job with them all. We are very blessed to have such great teachers to work with our kids.
And congratulations to all of the students who sang tonight! It was an enjoyable concert and we are so proud of you all.
