A Night at the Opera



Concert time again, and I am in fine proud mama fettle. The Queensland chapter of the Australian Youth Choir had their first concert performance of the year last night. It's our second year with the choir, so Christopher and I are old hands now! These children only get to rehearse all together once, three hours before the big show. The standard of performance is amazing. Every single time they manage to make me cry. Christopher is the tiny fellow, third down from the top on the righthand side of the choir. The photo is a bit dodgy because you're not supposed to have cameras in the concert hall, and I was trying not to draw attention to myself. Here's a closer up picture of our little angel...



The performance ended at about 7pm, and after collecting our over excited chorister, we walked through South Bank to have a yummy meal at Kapsali's. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the live entertainment, especially the belly dancer. We walked back along the river before taking Grandma and Pop up to the train station and driving home. It was a wonderful night. Made better by the fact that I stocked up on my favourite Lavender tea from tlicious. It's a lovely night cap!
