Outer Banks Octoberfest

Sometimes we get so anxious to talk about all the big things that are happening on the Outer Banks that we forget to mention the day to day events that make this such a wonderful place to live.

This is one of those small things that would never make a newspaper or radio or anything like that, but it’s a great reminder that the Outer Banks is a great place to raise a kid.

The combined First Flight High School, First Flight Middle School and First Flight Elementary School Choirs held their annual Octoberfest on Tuesday night.

It was an all German song night. . . a couple of pieces from Bach, a medley of Beethoven songs and a few pieces from The Sound of Music, which is admittedly about an Austrian family but I suppose it qualifies on the basis of language.

It was held in the High School auditorium which has excellent acoustics and the kids sounded really good, especially when the high school advanced choir sang accompaniment.

There wasn’t anything about the evening that was earth shattering or newsworthy-just families and friends celebrating one of the small moments that make life so precious.
