Midsummer Event: Concert!
Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:45

Sophie had fond memories of the midsummer events from her own days at Sonora. Bonfires, concerts, balls, and fairs. They were all pretty great. She had volunteered to emcee for this year’s event - the concert - and while the preparations were made, she couldn’t help but reminiscing about her own time. Her very first event as a student had been a concert, and now here she was, some fifteen years later. Time sure flew by sometimes.

For this year’s concert, most responsibility fell to the students. Namely, the clubs. It was pretty cool, she thought, how involved so many of the students were at this school. Just based on the smaller population, Sophie imagined they had to have a proportionally higher participation rate. That was cool.

As always, it was hosted in a hotel in town, just off school grounds. While Sonora had an incredible and more than suitable grounds, having it in town made it more accessible. Muggles could not go to Sonora, so this way, Muggleborns could have their families present just like everybody else. It wasn’t a struggle Sophie had ever experienced personally, with just about everyone in her life being at least halfblooded, but she nevertheless supported the gesture. It was only fair.

When it seemed all the family members were settled around tables, Sophie climbed up the steps to the stage. With a quick Sonorus, she addressed the crowd. “Hello, everybody!” she smiled. “And welcome to this year’s Midsummer event. We’ve got a great concert ahead of you, with just about all parts of the evening run by our wonderful clubs, so please, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!” Sophie cancelled out the spell, and as she dismounted the stage in the falling lights, she glanced ahead the table where her family sat, triple-checking that her son Stanley was behaving himself. Then she took her temporary place in the audience, and the show began.

OOC: Hello! Please keep in mind that this does take place outside of the school. It is only being posted here because we do not have a board for this location at the current time. All immediate family members are invited and can be posted. Congratulations on making it through another school year. Have fun, everyone!

        Julian had worn yellow. It was not a loud shade of yellow, he thought – to the extent he was good at telling shades of the same color apart – but that just meant it made more of a contrast with her... more
