Rebekah’s Spring Concert – 1st May 2012
This evening we went along to hear Rebekah play her guitar in her school’s annual Spring Concert. Mum and Holly also joined us for the evening and, at Holly’s request, we ended up sitting in the front row.
We had arrived in good time and the concert began promptly at 7pm once the guitarists (including Rebekah) had managed to shoehorn themselves onto the stage. Directed by their teacher, Mr Hastings, the young musicians opened up the evening with a variety of pieces.
Rebekah’s age group played two numbers – ‘Go tell Aunt Nancy’ and ‘Little Bird’ before joining in with the whole of the group to play another couple of tunes.
The guitarists formed only a small fraction of a running order that consisted of forty separate pieces.
Despite the overall concert lasting for around two hours in total, the quality of the performances were exceptionally good and it proved to be an enjoyable night for the children to show off their talents, the proud parents watching and the teachers who had put in so much work too.
