We went to see the African Children's Choir perform last night. Even though the concert didn't start until Atticus and Norah's normal bedtime, they were both entranced and behaved well throughout it. Unfortunately, I found my camera's batteries were dead when we got there so I don't have any pictures of the actual event. Atticus hung onto Paul and watched the entire performance with wide eyes. Norah was the only person in the room who embraced the leader's directive to get up and dance if the spirit moved you. She jumped and danced and spun so much that I finally took her to the back of the auditorium so as not to disturb anyone.
The singers, dancers, and drummers were fantastic and we really enjoyed watching them. One thing that bothered both me and Paul, however, was the overall tone of the presentation which was along the lines of "look at these poor, cute orphans" - I find that approach to be very polarizing in terms of Us v. Those People in Africa and I don't like it. I think the group's overall goal - raising funds to educate children - is a very noble one, but I wish they would tweak how they convey their message.
