Majestic Music...(9 days to go...)

(Lisa with her friend Kyla, just before the start of the concert)

It would seem that our cold spell is destined to be punctuated by warm, beautiful, reverent and majestic music, "out of the mouths of babes". Just as it ought to be... Lisa's Choir class have been performing almost every other night for various reasons. Tonight was no different; they traveled to Flower Mound, about 15 minutes away, to sing with the Flower Mound High School Choir to commemorate the 10th anniversary that these schools have been around. It was done at a local church in Flower Mound and they had special Choir director from Nova Scotia and a professional harpist from University of North Texas Music Department, as guest conductor and accompanist.
If there was one event that hearts were turned to what this season is truly about, it was here, tonight... All of their songs were gospel hymns dating back centuries like Deo Gracias and Stille Nacht (Silent Night).
It was hard to take any pictures; even the recorders that normally accompany them, opted for just an audio copy because they couldn't get a good angle where you can see everyone.
Our lord Jesus Christ must have been smiling and felt "well pleased" with these collected voices... I know, as a family, we were. RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET... Was this shopping center that had wonderful lighted trees in the front. I tried to capture them without flash, but it was so cold, I couldn't stop my hands from shaking!

How did you spend your Tuesday night?
