Winter Sing-A-Long!

“Hi Momma!”
“I want to be Frosty!”
“Look at my bells!”

The 2011 Winter Sing-A-Long was so much fun today!  With a variety of musical selections, families and friends enjoyed a short skit, piano duet, recorders, sing-a-long songs, and a choir performance, all in 30 minutes!  Our library was packed with an audience to support our 79 performers from Laurel Oak and Post Oak Cottages.  I am so proud of all the students who decided today was the day they would go on stage, the students who kept their eyes on me, the students who sang, the students who kept their bodies quiet, the students who followed directions, the students who played instruments, and the students who were flexible with their costumes.  All students were star performers today!

During the finale, “A Holiday of Music,” the power of the students’ voices enveloped me, as we sang from our hearts.  It was such a blast that I forgot that we were performing and had a music high from conducting the students and playing the bells.  When applause erupted at the end of the song, I came out of the music’s spell.  Sharing music through performance is uplifting.


Thank you so much for a fantastic musical end of December 2011; see you all in 2012!
Happy Holidays!
