Today I went with Ben's class to a concert put on by a gospel choir and a public high school choir. A guest conductor worked with them to put it all together as part of an annual series featuring African American music. This concert's theme was specifically the Negro spirituals. It was beautiful, and included some fun audience participation. I learned by talking to the music teacher for a few minutes afterwards that their 5th grade concert next week is also going to have a focus on the spirituals. Now I really can't wait.
On another note...after two months of this project, I find myself appreciative of, but also laughing about all the really fun places I've gotten to photograph. It seems so recently that I would have told you I didn't get out much, but clearly, I can't make that claim anymore. I have blogged 2-4 times per week for about four years, but it is much more apparent when posting pictures that I take daily just how much variety there is in my life. I am thankful.
