On 16 December 2012, 40 – odd students gathered at Staccato! nervous and excited for their end-year recital. With Christmas just around the corner, ‘Jingle Bells‘ and ‘Deck the Halls‘ made their way into many of the children’s repertoire with every parent eagerly brandishing their phones and cameras, ready to take videos and countless pictures of each of their beloved children’s performance.
At the end of the concert, Teacher Lydia and Teacher Xianling played a duet of two of the pieces in the Nutcracker Suite; “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy‘ and ‘Russian Dance: Trepak,’ much to everyone’s delight as many of the parents had brought their children to watch the “Nutcracker on Ice‘ who were performing in Singapore then.
Every child went home with goodie bags and special presents from their teachers for their hard work and practice.
