Last week, I wrote this post about a children’s concert Steve and I were presenting for a group of preschoolers.
Originally, we were told to expect 8-10 children and a few adults. With one week still to go, 35 children were registered (i.e. they called to say they were coming. The concert was free.) including two preschools! We were very excited at the prospect of having such a big crowd and knew we wanted them to have some space to get up and move around a little bit. We decided to rearrange the front of the Sanctuary to give us as much floor space as possible. And it’s a good thing we did. Imagine our surprise when 56 children (ages 2-5) and their grown-ups (including three preschools!) crowded into the church at 10 a.m. Thursday morning. We were overwhelmed but of course, thrilled!
We sang. We danced. We moved. We learned about the saxophone. We made funny sounds and learned the difference between high and low. We listened to several short pieces, waved our arms, and patted our legs.
It was a great musical experience!
