Bree's Fall Choir Concert

October 28, 2010

Last night was Bree's Fall Choir Concert. In the Fall they usually do pretty serious, somber tunes, often with some Latin involved--they showcase the tunes they've been rehearsing for festivals, and it's fairly traditional fare (unlike Spring Show, when they let loose with the more modern pop tunes). This year's show was dedicated to the Armed Services, part of a tribute to the seven young men from our school who have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one in the place who got a little teary during the tribute portion of the program.

Mr. Bergman

Bree's got several friends in the choir, some of whom she's known since early elementary school. Sometimes, when I look at these beautiful young ladies and handsome young men ready to step out into the world at large, I swear I see the adorable little cherub-faced seven-year-olds they were when I met them. Have you ever seen the movie Big, when Tom Hanks reverts back to his child-self at the end of the movie and he stands there in a suit seven times too big for him? Yeah, it's kind of like that. Weird, huh?
