Naturally I want R to like classical music too and am thus starting her indoctrination/enrichment (depending on how you look at it) early. She attended multiple concerts in utero (which seemed to agree with her, I felt her move for the first time during Madame Butterfly). She's been to several music performances already (in Bali), but last week she went to the symphony for the first time.
|Bad photo, but the only one I have. Too bad because R's dress was really cute.|
Note to self: work on learning to style hair.
|We weren't allowed to take photos during the concert, so this is before it started.|
|The concert hall is quite nice.|
Since then she's been remembering the concert regularly and has talked about it unprompted multiple times (she brings over the program and points out the photos of the musicians and conductor to me, babbling and making gestures like clapping and pretending to conduct). She even brought it up when we were skyping with my parents (I had forgotten to mention it, but R didn't!).
It is so fun exposing my child to the things I enjoy, and getting to experience them with her: possibly my favorite part of parenting!
