School Concerts

Why must school concerts be so painful to endure? Who makes the song selections? Who, tell me, WHO thinks songs sung in rounds actually sound good? Why must short songs be sung completely through TWICE, sucking any semblance of fun or enjoyment out of it? And why is every concert 50% longer than the patience of its audience?

They cash in on the fact that no one would attend if they didn't have a child or grandchild in the concert.

I'll be attending my seven-year-old's grade two Christmas celebration tomorrow afternoon, where the class will do a presentation for the parents and then we'll make a Christmas craft together. It will be far more entertaining and far less painful than last week's school-wide choir and handbell concert!
