This evening was Grace’s fifth grade music concert. Between Abby and Grace, this was our 10th (and last) music concert at the elementary school, and it was the best of them all! The kids were well-rehearsed, the songs fun and upbeat, and this year the students performed special musical acts on the stage—banging buckets and pots and pans like drums, playing a ball “game” along with the music, performing a sword dance, etc.– in addition to singing in traditional concert-style on the risers. It really was exceptional!
After the concert I sent a quick email to Grace’s music teacher to let him know how much I enjoyed the concert and thanking him for his hard work, dedication, and creativity. I really appreciate how much of his heart and soul he put into helping those kids end their elementary school music careers with a bang—literally!
