Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

The annual high school holiday concert, featuring every single musical ensemble in the school, is a wonderful reflection of community.

Community is found in the audience — parents and grandparents, neighbors and friends.  More importantly, an incredible community is found on stage — not only are these students musicians, but they are found in athletics, academics, art, speech, robotics, and more.  Music is a common language that transcends boundaries.

When words leave off, music begins.” ~ Heinrich Heine

Performances like these remind us of the importance of music and arts in our schools, and the critical role our public schools play in our communities.

  1. This one made me kind of teary. Lovely Community. I miss the years of going to see my children in plays and concerts and even the 7 hour Talent Show !


  2. What is it about an orchestra that is so handsome, moving and special? Thank goodness it still continues.
