As part of our “culture” requirements, me Suzette went for a night out to the R.E.M. Lee Theatre to see the Terrace Symphony Orchestra, with their performance called, “Music Through Time: 1680 – 2012 – Today,” at 7:00pm. And yes, this included lots of Halloween costumes, since part of the event featured a costume parade for the children, live on stage. It was a wonderful even, and we were entrained very well. For the evening out to this event, it was very reasonable in priced, at just only six dollars, all an awesome price for some live classical music, and great entertainment. Even one of the local school choirs sang two songs, with the Orchestra backing them up. And I shot some video!
The costume that some of the folks made were incredible. All the players and musicians dressed up for this. Some were cute, and others were very intricate. I think the guy in the Red Lobster suit looked awesome, and the and Cello player who dressed up as an Elf as Santa’s Little Helper, looked the most colourfull. Oh, and cannot for get the Energizer Bunny! LOL.
The above shot is the children who sang in the choir, called “The Ecole Mountainview School Choir,” who sang two songs. The event featured an audience sing-a-long, and a chance to be a Conductor, leading the Orchestra for one whole piece. Four young people were chosen for that, and there were a couple volunteers who really hammed it up!
The video is the Costume Parade, with the music “The Teddy Bear Picnic,” playing in the background. I posted this up on YouTube, for all to see. It was a great event to watch, and next year, I highly recommend you get out to see them play.
