Saturday evening, John and I went to a choral concert. My daughter, Viki, sings with the Chicago Chamber Choir, and they had their fall concerts this weekend.
Although I try to attend every concert my children are involved in, I was originally excused from this concert. That is until Viki was chosen to do a major solo. So, this nice Catholic girl and the nice Lutheran boy went to a concert of Jewish music.
Dinner before the concert was great, the concert was wonderful, and Viki was amazing! Okay, you are going to tell me I am a bit biased, but after the concert, two different people with very heavy accents came up to her to tell her how wonderful she was, and that her Hebrew was excellent! Both of these people were from Israel, so I think they would know. Countless others stopped to compliment her on her solo. I was very proud, I paid for those voice lessons in high school!
