Graduation Chorale 2010!
As most of you know, I became a homeschool graduate on May 22nd of this year. :) We are very blessed to live in an area where homeschooling is very common, several homeschooling families are in our area, and our local homeschool group is fantastic! Because of this, I had the opportunity to enjoy being a part of a wonderful graduation ceremony, as part of our homeschool group's Class of 2010. A first this year was that a group of seniors got together and, for the first time, performed as a chorale at the commencement exercises. I, and several of my friends, enjoyed this so much; it really reminded me of the days when I was in children's choir! We performed two songs, the delightful hymn "For the Beauty of the Earth (a personal favorite!) and a spiritual entitled "Keep Your Lamps". It was a great experience! We were blessed with a very talented choir director and greatly enjoyed our weekly practices leading up to graduation!
The above clip was taken by my grandmother during the ceremony. It's only a portion of "For the Beauty of the Earth", but I hope you enjoy it!
In case you want to know, I'm in the middle row on the far left. :)
And, I'm sorry that the sound quality isn't that great during some portions of the video. I hope you enjoy it anyway! :)
