For My Mother

For the last three years, our Mother's Day present to Mother has been for her to come listen to our orchestra concert. My mother doesn't ask for much, but she always enjoys hearing us play (I think it's just something about mothers). Anyway, we were finally able to get some pictures of our concert

The full Montgomery Youth Orchestra.

My brother, Caleb, playing the French horn.


Joel is graduating this year, so he stood
up with the other seniors. We couldn't
get a good picture of him playing.

And yay! Finally a picture with our conductor, Yvonne Collins.
We didn't have a good picture of Esther playing the violin, either.

Happy Mother's Day, to all the mothers!
I love you, Mother!!!

It was a beautiful concert! You all played wonderfully.

Thank you sweetie! Yes, you are absolutely right - music is the greatest gift you could give me. It was a delight to hear the pieces (and songs!) that you all worked on so diligently. I love you and I am proud to be your mother.
((BIG hug!))

It looks like a wonderful concert! I'm sure your mom enjoyed watching it. Wish I could've been there to hear it! Thank you for sharing the photos.

Lovely pics! Good work on the beautiful music! What did you play? Oh, and I was wondering if you could put up the link to your blog's RSS feed or Atom feed? That way I can put it on my Google Reader! Thanks!

Oh, we played quite a few pieces.
Here they are:

Old Joe Clark - Arr. Dean Marshall
Patriot March - Dr. Bynum Weathers
Our America - Arr. John Higgins
Elegische Melodien OP. 34 - Edvard Grieg
The Moldau - Bedrich Smetana
Ritual Fire Dance from El Amor Brujo - Manuel De Falla
Prelude from La Traviata - Guiseppe Verdi
Over to "The Wasps" - Ralph Vaughan Williams
Pines of Rome(Finale) - Ottorino Respigh

I'm not sure how to do the RSS Feed, but I'm sure Anna can do it (and hopefully show me how). :)
