Homeschool Concert Tonight
Tonight is the annual Homeschool Christmas Concert featuring the homeschool choir and two bands from the homeschool assistance programs. (The Marion HSAP invites students from the Cedar Rapids HSAP to participate in the bands.) The concert will be held at Franklin Middle School and will begin at 7:00 PM. A voluntary admission of $1 will be accepted. The concert is a “kid-friendly” event, and all are welcome to attend.
The choir includes 45 homeschooled students from Cedar Rapids and the surrounding area, and will be singing four Christmas pieces tonight. For this concert, I selected two very difficult, challenging pieces to stretch our abilities. The students have worked hard, though, and are prepared to offer a great concert!
This is the sixth year of our homeschool choir, a completely volunteer endeavor. The purpose of the choir is to provide homeschooled students with the opportunity to learn choral music, and the opportunity to sing for our community. Though we practice only once per week (most school choir programs practice many times per week), we do a good job meeting our goals.
If you’re able to join us for the concert, I’ll think you’ll enjoy it!
