Choir Concerts and Piano Recitals, Oh My!

  Well, it's that time of year....

AnnaClaire has been singing in a city wide home school choir this year.  There are 300+ children from grades 1-12 that sing in the choir.  They are broken up into smaller choirs by age.  AnnaClaire has been singing with the Music Makers, who are boys and girls from 6-8 years old.  They perform 2 concerts each year~ in the spring and fall, as well as sing at a local nursing home twice a year.  Here are photos from the spring concert.


AnnaClaire has learned SO much about music and composers, and more this year through her participation.  We are looking forward to next year, when Kate will be old enough to join the  Music Makers!
And on to the piano recital, which was held earlier this week~
AnnaClaire was the first to play.  Here she is anxiously walking to the piano.

 She played America the Beautiful and performed perfectly!

Next up was Grace
Our girls had a patriotic theme going, as Grace played The Stars and Stripes Forever. She also played her song through perfectly.

 Both girls worked hard, and we couldn't be prouder of them!

And here they are with their piano teacher.  She is SO patient and encouraging.  AND she comes to our house!  We couldn't love her more!

Nice job, girls!

Way to go Anna Claire and Grace!! Music is such a gift to enjoy and I'm glad you're embracing this. It's a lot of work too but will be worth it in the end.

3 cheers for you!!!
