For me, the highlight of
concert season has become
the "Last Night of The
performed in Vancouver
by the VSO and the Bach Choir.
Part of the evening involves
a teddy bear contest. Dozens of people compete, from small children to old men.
This year's theme was "Best Dressed As A
Performer Bear". I found the perfect
outfit for my favourite furry friend,
complete with pearls,
matching Mary Janes
and a tiny cello.
To our great surprise, Rosie Bell and I won first prize and were awarded a glorious CD of choral music performed by the Vancouver Bach Choir. Miss Belle tried to curtsy in gratitude but her chubby bear legs are not made for that!
I loved having a chance to inject some whimsy into the everyday. It's back to real life now, but I can't wait to see what Miss Belle will choose to dress up in next year...
