This past Wednesday, we hosted our Strings Extravaganza concert, or what remained of it. Strings Extravaganza is usually a multi-hour concert with every orchestra from 5th-12th grade performing, plus various solo and ensemble pieces; however, this year due to busy scheduling, the concert this year only consisted of playing from the junior high and the high school, with no solo or ensemble pieces, resulting in a concert of about 50 minutes. 433 more words

For those, who’ve not read this blog before, and it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, All Souls in the Catholic calendar is November 2, the day following All Saints’ Day, a holy day of obligation, and one on which one celebrates all the saints in heaven (including those, such as beloved figures such as Dorothy Day or one’s beloved parents, who are not officially recognized by the Catholic Church, with a Feast Day and the like). 1,542 more words
