I realize elementary school music programs only matter to parents and grandparents, but they read this blog so here you go...
Cory was so proud he had a line to say at the program tonight. He was the only one that didn't get a costume, but his line was more narration and the other kids were representing the lines of the character they wore.
The theme was something to do with the railroad and historical songs chants and songs that the slaves would have sung. There was Harriett Tubman, Abraham Lincoln, a peg leg Joe, and a conductor.
I know the blanked out faces look weird, but I wanted to show the background (and of course my kid will always be standing in the back row!) and they were all too cute!
He also had a part where he played the xylophone, but I missed it as one little sister had to go to the bathroom and I'd already made her wait for him to say his lines!
Then little sisters stole my camera focus by helping put away all the folding chairs.
Yes, the chairs were pretty much as big as they were, but they did a really good job either carrying or dragging the chairs over to the rack for us to put them up.
