In Concert

First choral concert of the new year last night at Greenwich High and the kids are already killing it, practicing hard on their way to February’s trip to Hawaii.

Part of the Concert Choir, one of the five Greenwich High choruses that performed last night.

Part of the Concert Choir, one of the five Greenwich High choruses that performed last night, and the one in which Catherine sings. She’s in the front row, fourth from the left of the conductor, next to the girl with the very long hair.

I can’t help but think back to the elementary school concerts and — a few of my readers will surely remember — the singing sessions at Mead School Child Care Center, including a particular tearful (for parents) rendering of “This Little Light of Mine.”

How far the kids have come. We are soaking up every last “last” in this senior year.

It’s great fun to sit in the audience and try to pick out the kids I’ve known since kindergarten — now all grown.

Here’s a clip from last performance, the Concert Choir singing “Bridge Over Troubled Water” to get your morning started.
