We enjoyed Georgia's first piano recital this evening. Instead of playing in a church for their families only, as both Madeline and Sophia did for their recitals, Mrs. Young arranged for the children to perform at Victoria Park Personal Care Community. Georgia played Jingle Bells on piano with one of her classmates, played a small drum in the rhythm ensemble with four other children (Jolly Old St. Nicholas), and sang two songs, Special Times and December Medley, with a larger group of children.
This afternoon, Neil and I saw Sophia sing in the school's "Christmas Spirit in Action" program at Wintergreene Estates seniors' residence. Last Friday, we saw Madeline and Bronwyn sing at Chartwell Retirement Residence, and tomorrow, we'll see Georgia sing at Selo Gardens Care Home. I'm really enjoying the school's selection of songs this year. My favourite is Le dernier mois de l'année; the kids sing it with great enthusiasm! Such a fun Christmas song. Each group (at each location) includes three grades of children and they sing the same five or six songs. It's nice to see the show three times! :)
