If you’re a parent, then you know that sitting through your kids’ recitals and concerts aren’t always the most enjoyable things in the world. Of course, you want to be supportive and it’s cute when they’re super young, but sometimes you don’t want to spend an hour and a half in a hot auditorium while angsty teens begrudgingly put on a performance.
Other times, though, the kids can really surprise you and put on a good show!
Sometimes, when the teacher is able to really connect with the students and understand what makes them tick, they can create a very freeing and creative environment. A good music teacher can change a kid’s life, and that’s a fact!
Music programs in schools are so ever-important. They keep kids engaged, boost their creativity, and teach so many valuable lessons, like what it means to be part of an ensemble, and how it takes practice to get better and better.
This group of high school boys had some fun with their holiday concert, and the crowd loved it!
The video starts out as you’d expect any home movie of a recital to start. Whoever is behind the camera zooms in to the section of the chorus that, presumably, his or her kid is in.
But if you make it to the forty-second mark, you’ll see what gets the audience going!
Getting a group of teenage boys to do something like this isn’t always easy. The pressure to be “cool” can make it hard to get kids to come together, put on the long robes, and do something like this.
But clearly, this choir director connected with his students and created a Christmas performance that they could get on board with.
This is a performance that these boys will remember for a while. You can see it on their faces that they’re having a grand old time!
When two boys emerge from the group to get up to the front, the audience goes wild!
Do you have any memories from Christmas concerts from your youth, or maybe from your kids’ recitals? Some of my fondest memories are from when I used to play in the orchestra and sing in the choir for the town’s annual Christmas show. It created such a warm and fuzzy feeling to play in the decorated church right after the Christmas tree lighting had taken place. It’s the event that kicked off the whole Christmas season and made it super memorable.
What makes your holiday special? Is it funny Christmas concerts like this one? Is it strolling through the neighborhood to see the festive lights and decorations?
Regardless of how you celebrate the holidays, remember that it’s important to laugh with your family and friends, and to not let the stress of the season get to you. It’s really about the little things and spending time with the ones who matter most to you.
