There were AT LEAST 60 kids there, not to mention the number of adults who came!
So, key highlights of the night:
1. WE WERE IN PAJAMAS!
2. We made a makeshift donation box out of an empty Goldfish box.
2.5. There were people who actually donated. We gained about $30-40 in donations!
2.55. THERE WAS A PERSON WHO HAD ONE KID ($5 per ticket for a kid under 12, everyone else was free) AND THEY GAVE US A $10 BILL AND TOLD US TO KEEP THE $5 AS A DONATION! THANK YOU, WHOEVER YOU WERE!
3. I DID NOT mess up! :D
4. I ran around a lot, because we were all put into groups, and I was supposed to be helping with tickets, but the people there already had everything handled, so I just helped around. I went over to the food station and mainly helped there, but I helped with crafts, signs, getting paper towels/napkins, getting $5 bills because it was annoying to give five singles every time someone gave us a $10 bill (which most of the people did....).
5. When one kid dissed my conductor! XD
Our orchestra actually managed to keep itself together throughout all of the songs! Though, a few things could've been better... For example:
1. The kids should have been more enthusiastic. Like, c'mon, guys. We're sounding so cheery and stuff. At least humor us! "If you know the words, sing them." I THINK you guys may know the words to Let it Go...
2. There was a piece that was long and slower, but it was absolutely beautifully performed by our orchestra's cellos. The kids started playing tag and screaming and stuff. *sighs*
3. The kids were supposed to get one snack each. We didn't anticipate THAT many people to come, so the snack to child ratio wasn't that equal. There was one kid who kept coming back. *facepalms*
4. The kids were allowed to come and look at the instruments after the performance. They all crowded around the drum set. *cues rimshot*
5. Did I HAVE to sit RIGHT IN FRONT OF the drum set? I think I'm half deaf...
AND THUS, CONCLUDES LAST NIGHT'S PAJAMA DAY CONCERT!
