With the ‘new’ privacy laws when it comes to kids it is getting too complicated to take pictures at events like this — even if they are teenagers, and it is a public event. So, I don’t bother. I take a few pictures of kids I know so I can send them to their parents. I try to take some of mine. At this concert Devanee was perfectly hidden from our view for all the concert. These two peek-a-boo shots were the best I could do.

This is an annual ‘outreach‘ program. We did this last year too.

This year it was a smaller group. It was led by the ever ebullient Andy Campbell, the Music Director of Brewster Academy and Clearlakes Chorale. Andy, who can also sing like no other, is also brilliant on the piano, very twinkly with a knack for uplifting improvisations. Andy was in great form last night as was the choir. It was a load of fun.

I felt privileged to be there. It was very uplifting and rewarding. I am also a known sucker for Christmas music and this has been quite a week: Clearlakes, Revels, Kingswood and then this.

Happy Yule.

We were so glad to hear that they rescheduled the concert from Saturday, due to the storm,
because we really wanted to go and couldn’t do so on Saturday given
the conflict with the Clearlakes Chorale concert
(given that Devanee sings in that).

It was impressive as we had expected. We went last year, for the first time, and liked what we saw and heard.

Glad we went.

Yes, we know Bobby Burns the Music Director and Conductor as well as a couple of the kids
since they also sings with Clearlakes.

These kids are good and so is Robert Burns
(and yes, he is named after the Great Man).

It always amazes me how the prosperity and pedigree of Wolfeboro, the Oldest Summer Resort in the U.S.,
is, unmistakably, reflected by these kids, the staff and the opulent setting.

Yet again, BRAVO Wolfeboro.

Two, possibly three, choir pieces were Acapella since Robert wanted to showcase the
voices of the kids sans help from a piano. It worked and it was good.

Robert wanted us to savor and appreciate some ‘crunchy melodies‘. We did.

The percussion African, ‘Kila Jambo Na Wakate Wake‘, with a Kenyan Kingswooder (new to the school this year)
on drums was good and reminded me of this piece from ‘Christmas at Luther‘.

The Concert Band belies their age and experience. They played some long pieces — very professionally.
A great credit to them, the staff, Bobby Burns and Wolfeboro.

It was mid-week and there wasn’t as many people as their should be — always bearing in mind that it is a
HUGE auditorium.

I am glad we went. You should try to make it next year.

Merry Christmas.

Of course, by definition, it was good, fun, heart warming and rewarding.

Bravo.

But, there was NO BAND!

What Happened?

Kingswood … did you get the date mixed up?

Bobby Burns did you oversleep?

Geee! I love seeing that trailer with the band go by wondering whether any will fall off.

But, it was fun. Thanks, Wolfeboro. Next year I will bring a boom-box for some music.
