Earlier this week our school held it’s annual Spring vocal concert. Since it was for grades 5 through 12 that meant we got to see both our girls and their friends sing.
It was an excellent concert from start to finish. Queen’s “We Will Rock You” performed by every grade was a great way to kick off the night. It was neat how it started off with just the younger classes to be progressively filled in by the upper classes.
I’ve written before how school music concerts are more enjoyable now that we know more people and that was the case for this show. It was fun seeing everyone perform.
One of the unexpected events of the night was a guy who sang a “promposal” to his girlfriend… but it wasn’t just him. The high school choir helped out by singing along. It was obvious they had prepared in advance and I thought it was cool that the choir director not only let it happen but helped in the execution. BTW, she said yes!
The other kudos I have to give to the choir directors is the song selections. The music was a mix of popular rock and radio hits that the kids seemed to have fun singing.
The evening ended the way it began… with all the grades coming together… to sing John Lennon’s “Imagine”.
It. Was. AWESOME!
Seeing so many kids excited about singing I knew I wanted that to be the topic of this week’s Bible verse. Several verses would have worked but I decided to go with Psalm 95:1(ESV).
