Pre-Festival Concert 2009

Last night was Meridian High School Pre-Festival Concert 2009. I always look forward to the Choir Concerts Brady is in.

This concert was a little different because the music selected is for a Festival. The Festival is similar to Brady's piano Festival with judges. They have to play or sing "required" selections to meet the criteria.

As I walked in, I took Brady's picture. He doesn't particularly like me being a weird Mom and snapping pictures in front of his classmates - especially when they yell out "Hi Brady's Mom". Poor Brady to have a scrap booking / blogging Mom.
Here is a picture of the Concert Choir. I snapped it before they started, because the conductor, Mr. Jack Brown always stands in front of Brady and I never get to see him. He is behind the Piano, front row. The first boy has a red tie and Brady is two boys over to the right.

I took this little video of the last song they performed. Brady couldn't believe I recorded this song and not the first one. You basically only hear 4 words through the whole song: "Get it Together, Harambee!". Next time I am going to try and record all the songs and then pick the best one. Here is the video.

Here is the program:

Concert Choir (Brady's Choir) sang:

"Come To Me, O, My Love"

"Adoramus Te Christe"

"Get It Together, Harambee!"

Filias Concordiae Treble Choir (Girls Choir):

"Joyfully Sing"

"O Occhi Manza Mia"

"The Garden of Music"

A Cappella Choir (Boys and Girls):

"Der Tanz"


"Man Is A Watch"

"Gloria In Excelsis Deo"

I was VERY sad that they "Jazz Choir" did not perform last night. They are always my favorite group. I was able to snap this picture of my handsome young man after the concert. He is such a cute, wonderful and talented son!
As a side note, Meridian High School is presenting the Musical "Godspell" this weekend, Friday and Saturday at 7PM. Doors open at 6:30. If you want to attend, you may want to go get tickets sometime this week. Students $5 and Adults $6.

Brady is purchasing tickets for us today (Brady, Jason, Sharon and me). I'm excited to attend this.

When I was little, my sister Cindy was in this high school play. Cindy has an amazing voice - she is the one who received that talent in our family. I also watched it when I was in High School.
I even have the music on my Zune.
Can you guess what I will be listening to this week?? Of course, Godspell to get me in the mood for the musical this weekend.

I loved the picture of your son with the girl sitting there. She looked so excited and thrilled to be there.

Since I'm behind a bit, YEA, on your door being fixed. Glad you have such great Home Teachers!!

Sounds like fun. Autumn had a solo she had to do. We didn't get to see it but I think her spring Choir concert is next week. You should have fun at the play. Sounds like a great time. So glad you got your front door fixed. Bummer it was broke. I wish you lived closer to us so Rich could do thses things for you.
