This past Sunday was our 7th Annual Fall Concert and without a doubt, it was our smoothest and best concert yet! I am so incredibly proud of all of my students for the hard work they put into preparing for this show, and the amazing performances they gave onstage (and we had a real stage this year!). We had one of the largest age ranges we've ever had - from kindergarten to high school senior - and the show featured all sorts of fun music including pop, rock, country, showtunes, classical, and original songs. My students really rocked, getting the audience to clap along to their songs and even laugh during our more comedic pieces ("Fur Elise +" anyone?). This year was also home to many "firsts," including having a real stage for the first time, we had the biggest audience we've ever had, a record breaking musical goals contest overall score of 65 points by our youngest ever winner, and even I performed - I sang a duet of "For Good" from Wicked with senior student Lauren, who was my very first vocal student ever and who will be graduating this year, making this her last Fall Concert with me.
This was definitely one for the memory books! Thank you to everyone who made the 7th Annual Fall Concert possible - my amazing concert volunteers: my parents Karen and Paul, my aunts Cathy and Linda, and my boyfriend Eric; the wonderful people at Vasa Park; the families and friends of my students; and of course my students, the stars of our show :)
Until next time everyone!
