For me Christmas & fine arts go together like hot chocolate & whipping cream. Imagine my pleasure as we drove downtown this unseasonably warm evening amid twinkling Christmas lights, beginning the month of December with Carmen and Chloe's choir singing in the Knox United Church Carol Festival.
The event was great, or as Steven would tell you: not as bad as he thought it would be. The performances were inspiring and there was sing-along time between the choirs - naturally, Steven joined in on the singing when he knew a funny version.
Carmen is a performance-night singer (fine arts version of a game-day player), and enjoyed herself despite the discomfort of new black pants.
It seems that the choir director has spoken to Chloe about not dancing while singing, which I think is a shame, but there you have it. The director must have her creative control I suppose. [Chloe found humor in the title another choir sang, Oh Tannenbaum, and desperately wants to sing Oh Tannenbum when we go delivering our chocolates and caroling as a family.]
Jaclyn had a friend in the audience who was there to hear his own sister sing in the LDS Institute Choir. The boy's presence was endlessly fascinating to my younger girls who seem overly interested in Jaclyn's current social stage-of-life.
