Strings in Concert

Good morning,

Going to school concerts is always such fun.  They remind me of the many concerts in which I participated while I was in school and I can identify with the excitement and anticipation of the children as they practice then preform for family and friends.
Two of our granddaughters performed in this string orchestra concert. 
These children had learned to play their instruments this school year and provided a very enjoyable concert to a packed audience.  How fun!

Congratulations to Granddaughters Kate and Lexi for their accomplishments as violinists!

Aside:  I used my baby camera, a Canon Powershot SX210IS, without flash to take these pictures.  I am delighted I was able to get the images I got from the back of the auditorium. 

Enjoy,
Lois

Congratulations to your grandchildren. What a thrill to see and hear them play.

As wonderful as it is to see so many young people performing on stage, Lois, it's just as wonderful to see so many audience members silhouetted in your photos. That means love and support and pride--three great things for children and their loved ones to share

How lovely that you got to be at their concert. I've got a little Canon Powershot too, and I think for some things it's actually a better choice than the DSLR, not to mention it's so much easier to take along. Yours definitely did a good job here.
