Music Recital 2015

On May 31st, our children had their music recital at the Memorial Baptist church.  The Torrance Music, the place where the kids go to for their  piano lessons, always hold the annual recital there.  The little mister was very nervous because it was his very first recital.  He was bouncing off the wall  and even used the restroom a couple of times before the program starts.  Ms. Burrito is very serious with music so she makes sure to practice a lot, this was the last practice at home.
 As Mommarazi, I can't let them leave without their photo taken.  They are in their age now where they are starting to resits  being photo shoot lol.  I take the pictures anyway, I am sure that they would appreciate these photos when they  are  grown up and have their own families.
 I planned on   on letting my daughter wear a red dress to match her brother's but she didn't want to.  She chose this dress instead and justwear her red high heels.  I also have a rose pin and thought it would look nice as an accent to badd color to the black and white dress that she have.
 EJ was wearing the red dress shirt and tuxedo pants that I got from BlackNBianco.  He love to   dress up but this particular day, he was  anxious.
There are two parts to the recital program.  The first part was  guitars and special request and the second part (which they were part of) was all piano and singing.  We went early because  we wanted to get a good seat. The first program wasn't done yet when we arrive so we waited at the lobby area of the church.
It gave us time to have some photos (of course, lol).
Looking at these photos makes me happy and sad.  I can't believe they are growing up so fast.  It's hard to believe that I gave birth to two loving kids!  I am blessed!
A professional photographer came and   took photos before the second part of the prgram starts.  I was a bit late to snap their pose but still managed to get this.
Daughter played two songs, the fairytale and Toccatinaby Kabalevsky.  I am not sure why the teacher gave her two but I am glad  as she did pretty well with both.  It was just funny that after the first song, the audience thought she was done so they all gave her a round of applause but then she started playing the other one.
Here's the video of her performance.

Below is EJ's performance of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  He's only been taking piano lessons for three months so the teacher gave him  an easy song to learn.

Parents and family can  put a dedication to their kids at the back of the program which is really nice.  I love this  music recital because  there are no tickets to sell or fund raising to do in order to  be able to participate in a recital.  You can invite as many as you like to attend the recital.  
It was getting ready to rain when the  program  ended so we hurried up and left.  We didn't  even had the time to talk to some friends.
We went to Eat N' Park to celebrate the occasion.
Our neighbor never ceased to  attend our children's  precious events and we are very grateful for them.  My husband's family  seldom attends to any of my kids  events even if we invite them and it makes me sad. I wish my family is here, they will sure atend to this kind of events for my kids.  
I understand now why, even though we didn't really like this house when we were looking at it, we bought it anyway.  I think God purposely situated us here because we have great neighbors who treats us like family.  
Well, that's another precious memories for my children.  We will continue to support their music  interest as long as they want it.  Music is a beautiful thing.
We wish you another  year of learning Burritos.  May you continue to soar high and   maintain to love what you do with music. Shadow Shots

  2. You know what. Your Daughter reminds me of my one Granddaughter. She has excellent posture. My Granddaughter was always like that. When she sat, she sat so straight.

  3. My husband's family is like that too-must be a 'cultural' thing. It's wonderful to see how much Ms. Burrito has grown in playing her instrument since last year! Wow-that was a hefty piece to memorize and she played it so well. Congrats to your son too for his first performance. My advice to Ms. Burrito is to 'milk' the applause! A ballerina courtesy done slowly is just enough.
    And, when they start to refuse for momentous photo ops like this, tell them that all their 'aunties' and 'uncles' in Bloggerland love seeing them grow up!

  19. Where has time flown? I remember exchanging comments with you when they were still tiny buds. Your girl sure looks like a day or two close to being a teener. She's going to be a stunner, I'm sure. I'm impressed at how you've been nurturing your kids, sis. I salute your dedication and love for your family. :)
