My Little Patriot

This is what Kirsten learned at school today. She just started saying it on the way home from a choir concert tonight. We were very surprised and pleased!

We went to the Evans Middle School Choir Concert tonight. They are just down the street from us and have been chosen as the Texas State Middle School Honor Choir. They leave on Thursday to perform at the State Capitol in the Rotunda at noon, and then on to San Antonio where they will be a featured concert at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention. This is a great honor. Several hundred choirs submit tapes and only one is chosen. The convention is attended by about 20,000 people annually. One of my piano students, Emily Price is in the choir. They sang so beautifully. It was a choir performance that any high school or even some colleges could have been proud of, and they are just 12 and 13 years old. Congratulations Emily, and good luck!
