Last Saturday, Lexi had her Circle the State with Song "select" choir performance. There are approximately 13 schools in the region that our district is in, and the music teachers from each school pick the students to participate in this "honor" choir program. The ages are from elementary to middle/junior high school. The youngest our school (maybe all the schools) picks is 4th grade and Lexi was in this choir last year also. I have put a heart around Lexi in each collage picture so you can locate her. (Remember all pictures can be clicked on to enlarge.)
This is the write up on this year's Conductor, Cristi Miller. The children already have the music and have practiced at their respective schools, but the morning of the performance they arrive at 8:00 a.m. to start practicing as the big group. The Conductor (and helpers) work with the group all day long, getting their performance ready for the 3:00 p.m. concert and it was a packed house. Lexi said she was wonderful and fun. (Click to enlarge if you would like to read about her.)
Here are the songs they sang. Nothing is as sweet as listening to young children singing. It was wonderful.
Here is a link to watch a video of The Duel. Alan was trying to hold the video at the back of the auditorium and was moving quite a bit, sorry. This was a light hearted, fun song they sang. When watching the video, the little girl on the right of Lexi is one of her friends and watch all of her expressions. Too cute!
