My Megan Beth was absolutely FANTASTIC last night in her Strings Concert. It was even more amazing than I thought. You see our school district (PUBLIC I might add!) had their 33rd annual Evening With Strings. Grades 5 thru 12 combined together to put on one of the most amazing public school music events I have seen in a long time. Over the years it has grown so big that they have had to split it into 3 separate nights just to accommodate all the schools and satisfy the Fire Marshall.
So, what does that mean? Well, it means that even though this picture seems to show what one would think were all of our schools were there. But in all only a handful of elementary schools, 3 middle schools, and 2 high schools were scheduled for last night.
Here are a few shots from the top of the bleachers where I sat.
Now, this one above is a picture of the floor. This is where middle schools and the high schools sat. Look closely (in bottom right corner) in the stands and you can see that is where the 5th graders sat.
Below is a better shot of the bleachers where the 5th graders sat.
As you can see they filled almost the entire side of the gym!
The music director for the district said that there were over 1000 students participating last night alone!
A few more arial type shots:
Now, to get more specific and brag on MY Megan Beth. What a little performer she is! Every time she is nervous as all get out but as soon as the show begins she is on her A game.

I'm so proud of all the kids last night, but of course I have to admit I am a bit biased with my Megan Beth!
