Yesterday was our trip to see our local orchestra. Each year they do a tremendous job of putting on a fantastic concert for our 3rd - 5th grade students. Some of the highlights from this year:
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Pomp and Circumstance
There were many other pieces but these were a few of my personal favorites from this performance.
My favorite part of this event is selecting two 5th grade students, one girl and one boy, to represent our school on stage singing the National Anthem. There is usually a group of about 10 to 12 kids from the schools attending the concert who go out and stand in front of the orchestra and sing. What a special moment for these kids!
