Suzuki Celebration Gala Concert

 The day we have been practicing for was finally here!  Ellie and Lynnie have been working hard and learned two songs to sing as well as being excited to play the Twinkles.

Cece had the opportunity to play with {R} again, and it sounds like they had a super fun day!  The best part is when {R} texted me and said that Cece was really showing off for her :)

We got all lined up in the hallway again, and this time Lynnie and Genna stood next to each other.  There was a rehearsal first, and then a short dinner break before the concert began.  They were nice to the Twinklers, and after getting lined up, they had us relax and play in the hallway before joining the rehearsal halfway through.

One of my favorite parts of Ellie's personality is her ability to make friends anywhere at any time.  Mia was funny and they had a good time together.

Smile, Ellie!

 Little Molly was super sweet.  She is only 3 and played her Twinkles on a box violin.  She fell asleep during the rehearsal and tried really hard to be reverent during the concert, but it was hard work.  Ellie tried valiantly to help her, entertaining her with pictures and games on Daddy's phone.


1300 students participated, on the violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, harp, guitar,voice, and piano.

Aunt Bobi came to watch the concert, and we told her to wear a black shirt so she would look like a parent volunteer and come sit by us.

The red dots were the Twinklers designation, and they told us to have them put a picture of themselves on their cases to help find them more easily.

We were glad that Grandma encouraged us to sign up and come!  Ellie said her favorite part was everything.  Lynnie said her favorite part was walking out where the prophet gets to walk out.
