Enjoying the music of the Season
Our family attended the M-State Mannheim Steamroller concert on December 10 and thought it was fabulous. This You-tube link is from last year, but it does capture the great quality of the music. I loved how energetic the conductor was! Can't imagine how many calories he alone burned. The performers were a cross section from the high school level, to the collegiate level, all the way to the community level. We really are blessed with local talent.
Abby also participated in a Winter Holiday Choir concert at the Kennedy Secondary School on December 12th. It was so beautiful. There were performances from 6 different concert choirs, but I will have to say that the 8 part A Cappella women's choir which sang "O Come Emmanuel" was my favorite and literally brought tears to my eyes.
