Annual Concert 2008

We attended XY's kindy's 6th Annual Concert cum Graduation Night on Saturday. For such event, the digital camera and video camera are a must. Unfortunately, the cameras decided to go on strike. :( Before we left the house, PaPa was checking the video camera and then the tape compartment can't close back. It was faulty the last few times we used it, but somehow we still managed to make it work. But this time, it just 'die-ded'. So we asked BIL to bring his video camera as they're going for the concert as well.

Anyway, the school has engaged a professional videoman to capture the event and I've already put in my order for the DVD. But with a personal video camera, we can zoom in on our 'star'. hehehe As for the DSLR, its battery 'die-ded' halfway while PaPa was taking photos during her dance. Yeah, the smart me charged the (faulty) video camera but forgot to check the digital camera. *knock on own head*

~ the tape got stuck ~

XY was involved in 2 performances - percussion and dance. As there weren't enough Year 6 students, some of the Year 5 students were included in the percussion. I think she was playing the clarinet. Can't see what she's holding from where we're seated.

~ mickey ears for the percussion performance ~

There were some hiccups during the event. They had technical problems with the curtain. Some of the children were a bit lost on stage, especially the 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds. Some got too nervous and forgot their speech. But I'd say being on stage in front of so many audience and not cry is already a big achievement for the kids. Must give a big applause to all the teachers and students for their great effort.

Luckily XY did fine. She came out in her rabbit costume and introduced her dance, Tarzan. While practising at home, I kept reminding her to speak loudly and clearly. And boy was she loud! She was holding the microphone too close to her mouth. So her voice came out too loud in the auditorium. This happened every time the student held the microphone themselves. If it was put on the stand, the volume was alright.

We stayed till the end for the prize giving ceremony. For the colouring contest organised by her school, she got 2nd in her class. Once we got home, she immediately asked me to open up the present.

Phew... the much anticipated concert night's over. Here starts the one and a half months school holidays. Will I survive? :-)
