We are glad that our MOO is an author and not in charge of the technical side of things. She was smart to bring her camera to the BIG SHOW. She was smart to ask a friend of hers to take pictures of us at the show. She was not so smart when she did NOT charge the battery before going to the BIG SHOW! So, for now, these are the few pictures we have from our very memorable, very exciting, very BIG afternoon. When our MOO got up to read the story The Moose at the Manger...you can probably guess, that is the same moment the camera died. On the upside, we will be getting a DVD of the event next month and hopefully will be able to share some of the highlights with you! In the meantime, enjoy some of the captured scenes from Musichorale's Christmas Concert!
You can see some of us moose if you look closely!
We are sitting in between all of the poinsettia's.
Here is Chris, the main moose, on Pop's drum!
People think this picture was taken for the singers, but if you look at the bottom of the picture, you will see moose and antlers!
The choir in their carolers' costumes
Here is our Moo looking somewhat perplexed. I bet she's thinking about the words to the next song.
If you look closely, there is a moose hanging from that "M".
Choir robes for our sacred set of songs. Look Moo knows the words!
Now that we had our 65 moose picked and ready to go, we had to figure out how to get them to the auditorium. The most popular suggestion made was to just throw them all in to big black plastic garbage bags. When we asked the moose, they certainly didn't like that idea. Next, we thought we could use the clown car idea, but believe it or not, our car wasn't big enough.
Finally, we came up with a plan! We had to drive two cars to our concert that night. My husband and his drums went in one car (and a couple of moose for company), and I drove separately with the rest of the moose. Here they are getting ready for their road trip.
Believe it or not, there was just enough room for me in the driver's seat.
It has certainly been a busy time of year for us moose! Who would have thought that a room full of moose in a quiet house on a quiet street would get so much attention. This past Sunday was our BIG Musichorale concert! The first decision to be made was which moose got to be on stage. As much as we would have all loved to be there we understood that 200+ moose can be quite intimidating. We first went through our two-step "Moose Try-outs" Step One- Deciding which moose was big enough to be seen at a distance, but wasn't too big to take over the other stage decorations
Step Two- Demonstrating which of us moose could sit up by ourselves Once that was completed our group of 65 was chosen. Here are some pictures from our try-outs.
Stay tuned for Part Two of 15 Minutes of Fame...The Packing of the Moose!
The moose are very excited about their upcoming show this Sunday! We can't reveal who all is going yet, but let's just say, there will be scores of moose in attendance. We are taking lots of pictures in order to document this event. This is the first time any of the moose will be on stage!
Where it is they will be going? They are going to join Muse the Moose at the Musichorale Christmas concert.
Tickets are still available if anyone wants to join us!
