Last night was Morgan's Christmas Concert. I was excited for her. This was a smaller orchestra and I was hoping she wouldn't get swallowed up like at her old middle school.
See? Much smaller! They played reasonably well for 7th graders, but I was surprised at the lack of a percussion section and that NO ONE WAS TAPPING THEIR FOOT! When I was in music in school I got yelled at if we didn't have our foot tapping along with the beat, but then again, we also had a percussion section to help us keep the beat.
I was, however, glad to see that the music department did make a small concession to the tragedy in Newton CT. They placed a quote from one of my favorite composers on the back of the program.
