mama mondays: family christmas concert

Okay, so it's not really Monday. Monday sort of slipped away in the post-Christmas haze. Which is why I'm trying to recapture it. 

This post is really for the music lovers, especially those who don't mind a few flaws here and there. Below are bits of the concert our family participated in and enjoyed in my grandmother's living room Christmas evening. It includes some, but not all, of the performances carried out by my sister Camille's and my children, along with a few extras from the adults. Please forgive the rather blooper-filled duet that the two of us sang. The last time we performed this together for an audience was over 20 years ago.

Links will bring you to a 6-year-old on harmonica, 11-year-old on clarinet, 12- and 14-year-old on piano, 16-year-old on baritone, two old gals singing, and a special performance of Silent Night on an Iphone that you won't want to miss. Turn up the sound and hear the amalgamation of music and technology at its finest by my brother-in-law Chris, who doubles as a high-school music teacher.

Christmas blessings to all! It's not over yet -- not until Epiphany, and not even then for those of us with hope in our hearts.

Awesome! What fun. Ok, that decides it, bring your instruments, voices, and spirit to my house which I will now dub Mary Aalgaard's Play off the Page home of fine arts.
Love how Nick was stealing the show during the baritone solo. Your duet was lovely. There's something so special about sister voices and how they blend.
