Turkey & Peacock sang with the Young Singers choir. They performed Mozart's Alleluia and A Bushel & A Peck (from Guys and Dolls). They were darling!!
Penguin sang with the Children's Choir and they performed The Lonely Goatherd (from The Sound of Music), Bach's Sheep May Safely Graze (in German), and When You Believe from The Prince of Egypt (in English & Hebrew) which included a solo part in Hebrew for Penguin. She did an awesome job and confidently sang in front of 1000's of people! As she stood up at the front of the stage and sang, I couldn't help think about the miracles that took place and the things I had to trust & believe in to get her from a Russian orphanage & into my family. The lyrics were very fitting for my sweet girl. I was SO proud of her!! And in both concerts after this song was completed, the performers received a standing ovation.
And I, the mother (with a pink star below), faithfully plowed away on my trusty ol' violin for about 6 hours yesterday evening. Today my back, neck, arms, etc are not happy with me, but I had a fabulous time! Thanks to all who made the effort to come share a spectacular evening with my family & me!!
