Musical Interlude

There is something very joyful about sitting in a tiny, uncomfortable school auditorium and watching young people learning to play and developing an appreciation for music. 

I am not personally musically inclined.  I don't play any instrument.  I can't carry a tune in a bucket.  That's not to say that I don't enjoy music.  I do.  A lot.  I enjoy listening to music.  I also enjoy singing along.  Often.  Loud.  And badly.  Which is why I find it fascinating to hear my own children play their respective musical instruments. 

Last night was the Little Man's last orchestra concert as a middle schooler. And his first with the high school orchestra.

First the 8th Grade Orchestra played a couple of pieces.

Variations on a well-known Sea Chantey - Stephan

Then after the high school orchestra played a couple of songs, the 8th grade joined them for their first concert pieces with the high school orchestra!

Ancient Ritual - DelBorgo


  1. Beautiful! I always enjoy orchestras ...

  2. I'm getting ready to send my daughter some photos of her with her cello at a grade school concert; your post made me smile.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! How long did your daughter play cello?


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the blogdom! I love hearing what you have to say; so please take a moment to share your thoughts. Have a blessed day!
