The program had seven “courses”, each with five or six student musicians and several musical pieces in a theme. One was tea time and the musicians were dressed as waiters. One was a little opera piece with the singers performing in Italian, with Japanese subtitles up on the screen. Another had a Nutcracker theme, with a mouse and a tin soldier. At the end of the concert the audience members voted for their favorites. The group I voted for came in third and the group Ted voted for came in first. One student from each group accepted the awards.
Remember the pumpkin Kit Kats I posted about the other day? I saw this little package of snacks at the Haruki this week – a pumpkin drinking beer in January. What is this about?
We had a clear day yesterday and Ted shot these pictures of the distant mountains from our kitchen window. The big sculpture in the foreground of the first picture is at City Hall.
