Honestly, I was expecting far worse. Isn't that a terrible thing for a parent to say? With the reports from the boys after hearing the matinee' I was fully expecting a muddle. What we heard was far far better and I'm proud of Rebecca and Katherine for sticking with their little groups.
Some of it was traditional. Here the middle school and high school choirs combined.
And the combined band made a decent rendition of a carol mash-up. I give great big kudos to the band director for doing what he can with the limited human resources he has. In the middle school band there is a single trumpeter, a tiny little guy who didn't play perfectly but did a fine job with what essentially were large sections of solo work. All together the group gets a fairly good sound, even, as Katherine says, most of them have difficulties counting to 4.
