The Homeschool Choir
We had our homeschool Showcase on Tuesday evening. The church hall was filled with exhibits of work by the children, and Emily and Timothy had a table where they showed some of their history and science pages and some artwork. Upstairs, in the sanctuary we had about an hour and a half program with children playing musical instruments, singing, dancing, reciting and giving speeches. Part of the program was the homeschool choir singing their two pieces. They did a great job!
We had 19 children in our choir aged 4 - 12. Many of the children had worked at home and had done a fantastic job memorizing the words of the pieces, and they did what we had rehearsed - e.g. looked at me, ennunciated, etc. I was very pleased! We will likely do a couple more performances, and then stop for the summer, but there seems to be enough interest that we will have to start up a choir again in September. Here we are in action!
