Spotlight On...

Monday night was the fall concert for the WJHS choirs.  For those of you who were not invited, DON'T LOOK AT ME!  The kids called me on my way home from work and said, "Are you coming to our concert tonight?"

(And while I am thinking about it, the Christmas concert will be $5 per person and is a fund raiser for the kids' choir tour.  Tickets go on sale on November 1st.  Taylor doesn't need to raise this money, so call Ashie if you wanna go.)

Anyway, the choirs were all really fabulous, but I gotta give huge kudos to Concert Choir, who seriously wow'd us with "Lord of the Small."  Their diction, their intonation, their balance, their dynamics were all incredible.

The Madrigals are also WONDERFUL, and they look beautiful and oh-so-modest, which I love.

Did I remember the camera?  Of course not.  But hey!  I didn't even know I was GOING to a concert!

Eh, who am I kidding?  I would have forgotten it anyway.  How do I know this?  Because last night was the Spotlight Players auditions for The Wedding Singer, and I did not have my camera there either. 

Mr. DeHaan gave each student involved 4 tickets to give to friends and family.  We went and watched the auditions and then got to vote on who we would choose for the parts in the play.

Ya know those cheesy home videos that people post on You Tube?  And ya know how sometimes those are really cool?  That would have been Taylor last night.  Seriously, he ROCKED his audition and his song and his acting. 

I know, I know, you think I'm exaggerating just because he's my (AWESOME, TALENTED, HANDSOME, AMAZING, WONDERFUL) son.  Well, I'm not. He's seriously a shoo-in for the part he auditioned for.  Seriously.

No, really.  Seriously.

Hey, I just read your blog and remembered that I was going to call or send you an email this weekend. I must agree with you, your son is pretty awesome. Besides that he is such a good influence upon my son. I hope that something rubbed off on mine this weekend. It sounded like they had a wonderful time, but when all was said and done, dates were safe at home, and we all should have been in bed, he came back to my house to help clean up. He was a little weak and sat down to finish watching the movie they had started, but I think that was the influence of my son. Thanks for sharing him with us. The Giffords
