We are doing kiddie concerts this morning. I think the children are in third grade or close to it. I enjoy these, although the noise is sometimes a bit much (I have my earplugs at the ready). BUT …

It’s not over ‘til the fat baby sings. Scottish Opera is attempting to reach beyond its normal audiences of middle-aged music buffs by launching a series of concerts aimed at infants, aged between six and 18 months.

The experimental performances, to be staged at venues across the country, will feature no lyrics, narrative or plot. Instead, classically trained singers will create baby-friendly noises, such as Wellington boots splashing in puddles, buzzing bees, quacking ducks and the fluttering of feathers.

Um. Okay then. 6 and 18 months, eh? That’s one stinkin’ concert, if you ask me. 😉
