Musical Talent – {almost} Wordless Wednesday

Last week, we attended our daughter’s very first group band performance! The Winter Concert featured her fifth grade chorus and band members. They played several short sets — and sounded really good for only having a few practice sessions under their belts! They finished up the hour long event with some wonderful holiday songs. “There’s No School Tomorrow” was a crowd favorite :).

Mom and Lee joined us and I think they had a nice time. I was snapping this sweet picture of them when my friend snuck up behind me and waved her hand in front of my camera — bad! {who then almost had karma bite her in the butt when she almost fell of the bleachers trying to get a picture of her daughter by the decorated tree — yep I saw that! lol}! I think the picture still turned out well though!

Happy Wordless Wednesday everyone! I’ll visit everyone who comments :)

    Your daughter looks great! They don’t have band here until grade 9, but my son joined then and it was great. He went on a band trip to the Bahamas, and it lead him to join a local choir after high school, where he got to tour Europe. The arts provide great opportunities!
