An Evening of Song

Our family was blessed to attend the Virginia Opera performance of The Valkyrie on Saturday night, because two of my children were performing with their handbell choir before the show and during intermission.  Memorizing artists and pieces for "music appreciation" takes on a whole new meaning when you've seen the show from which the piece came!  (Hence, "Flight of the Valkyries" by Wagner will now forever live in the memory in a different way.)

Here is a little sampling of the delightful handbell music--captured poorly on my phone, but captured nonetheless.  My youngest EL is the feisty little one on the left end; my son PT is the very tall one on the far right of the screen in the second video.
