Our handsome son Anders had a terrific choir concert at River Falls Public High School. The final selection was especially exciting with a combined choir where the choirs sang and danced a traditional African song. I could hear Anders and my friend Carrie took a couple pictures of him.
Anders is the Symphonic choir and sang:
