It’s never too late for us adherents of that ‘better late than never’ quote. No lost opportunity here. What we have here is too special to be left out: the Children’s Ark Preparatory School’s December presentation of “The Heart Of Christmas.” A special recital held on December 19, 2016 at the Philippine Social Science Center in Diliman Quezon City.
The Heart of Christmas follows the story of the coming of Jesus; from the summoning of Joseph by the Angel to, ultimately, the birth of Christ.
Our young students performed their best. We could see how their confidence level blossoms. They just got up there in front of the people, aware that excellence is not of certainty, and the thought that “giving” their music to the audience is why they play music. It is meant to be shared.
TCAPS believes the important role music provides to the young minds. As a means of communication and expression of culture and individual identity. Young children are normally used to singing nursery rhymes.
Here, we boost their interest in music to infinity and beyond!
Our young students are encouraged to take part in the recitals. Those who are just starting out on this musical path, the variety of their style, level, age and appearance is simply fascinating to watch.
A child must learn to think musically. And that is what will help assist the development of the child and their academic development. A music recital is kind of like-life.
But of course, anxiety accompanies a child’s performance on the stage. Tears, tantrums and tummy aches. All of these symptoms come along. They need to realize and be willing to be vulnerable in front of lots of people. Our students are aware that sharing with others is more important than the fear of not being perfect.
Another smashing performance by the TCAPS students — to the delight of the audience, guests and parents — as they
share the stage for a very special evening which really deeply touches the viewers. And to the success of the TCAPS faculty. If these made the audience smile or even cry, they have done a really good job.
