Christmas Concert

Sarah in performance on violin (second violinist from the left).

Back on December 11, Ed, Dylan, our friend Gwen, and I enjoyed watching my firstborn perform with the White Mountain Symphony in a wonderful Christmas concert.  Here are two short snatches of their performance for you to sample (feel free to scroll to the bottom of the page and pause the music on my playlist):

This is a strings-only performance from "Pastorale ad Libitum" by Archangelo Corelli.  You can't really see Sarah during this piece since the gal next to her leaned forward the entire time.

This bit is, of course, part of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" from The Messiah.  The soloist had the perfect voice for the part.  You can see Sarah at the left side of the stage, especially when I zoom into her area.  Don't they sound wonderful?
