Grateful for School Concert

During this past week I was grateful for my daughter’s school concert. The music teachers at her school organised an opportunity for parents to listen to what the children had learned and practised during the school year. I enjoyed listening to the various pieces and was impressed by what my daughter’s group played. My favourite was “The Hungarian Rhapsody” by Liszt while “New York, New York” brought back memories of my dancing days and when I used to fotroxt to this well-known Sinatra song.

Watching the concert was bittersweet as my daughter has had to choose between music and art for next year – and has chosen art.

What have you been grateful for this week?

Last week Patchwork Ponderings was Grateful for Little Flowers.

I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life. Please remember to send me a pingback so that I know you have participated.

  1. Love this! I was in band up until I graduated from college, and I hope my child will become involved in music when he’s older. I’m sure you’re very proud!

  2. Colleen, how exciting for you. I miss those days of concerts. I was lucky my oldest son lived near by for the years my grandchildren were young. I was able to enjoy their concerts, too.


  3. Art is a wider spectrum, she can still go on with music later on or part time. It must be wonderful to listen to these young people performing. Much to be grateful for! 🙂


  4. Thinking about what I am grateful this week. Good thing I have your blog, prodding me to bring that to mind! Two half days and four classes of exams, my last day of my teaching students is Friday. Unbelievable. I am grateful for a gratifying career and the opportunity to retire while I can still walk around.


    1. I agree, Ruth, that teaching is a gratifying career. I love seeing children grow and develop throughout the year.
      Have you taken retirement now? If so, it must have been bittersweet to see goodbye to your students at the end of this school year.


  5. I really enjoyed our school’s Solo Night in which various pupils had the opportunity to perform items of music for parents in a show. Alasdair performed Mozart’s Minuet & Trio (from his K439b Divertimento) on the Clarinet. I was impressed by the efforts of all the children in the concert – so much talent. I’m sure you are rightly proud of your Daughter – it’s so hard to find the courage to perform live, especially in front of friends and your parents!
