The concert Monday night was one that we’ll always remember! We arrived at Carnegie Hall plenty early so we spent time in the Carnegie Museum. Lots of interesting artifacts…a copy of a letter from Franz List that started the ball rolling. We learned that a lot of famous composers have conducted there…Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Sousa,
We enjoyed the middle school choirs that opened the evening. Then we heard the high school choirs…they almost overflowed the stage with so many singers. They were very good as well.
After intermission was Mozart’s Requiem. What we all had been waiting for!
Sarah is in the middle of the back row of this picture. She is second from the right of the lady with the white shirt that is walking in front of the back row.
Here’s Joanna in the middle of the back row of this picture.
Here’s Victoria standing in front of the middle guy in the back row.
Here’s Jeffrey in the middle of the second row from the back.
Picture of the entire choir and orchestra.
We weren’t disappointed. The conductor was great. He was obviously into it. The large choir included a good men’s section that definitely enhanced the performance. Way to go, Jeffrey! The crowd gave them a well-deserved standing ovation at the end.
After the concert, we briefly met up with Sarah, Joanna, Victoria and Jeffrey.
Mom, Nicole and I headed back via the subway. By the time we got to bed it was after midnight again.
By the way, the singers had a reception afterwards from 11 pm till 1 am. The kids told us later that it was first class…nice venue, live music, and great food (including salad, rolls, finger foods, drinks, desserts, cheesecakes, and more). It was the whole nine yards!
