A beautiful concert
Twin #1 sings in the High School choir, and they performed their winter concert last night. It was so amazingly beautiful.
First off, they hold the service at Skinner Chapel at Carleton College which lends an Old World air to the service. Photo at left.
Second, the High School choral director is quite a talented young man and makes the most professional choices, and works with this group like they are a college choir. He perfectly showcases all that talent. They sang "My Dancing Day" and "Sussex Carol" and a modern poem rewritten in Latin. Most of it acapella. I'm a huge fan of choral music, and this was a real treat.
Twin #2 also has a lovely voice, but she wanted to take a break from choir. After the Fall concert, she realized this was not a good decision but can't get back into the program until next Fall. Oh, if only they'd listen to their mother!
