Girls rock (Apr. 22 and 24)

April 21, 2008

Yesterday M. and I went to see his babysitter sing in a recital — she’s one of the Opera Theatre Artists-in-Training (see a Fox News segment on the program here). It was a wonderful afternoon, hearing those beautiful voices and seeing 21 teenagers who’re so passionate about their talents.

I haven’t seen the new documentary “Girls Rock!” yet, but I suspect it’s uplifting in the same way as yesterday’s recital. I base that opinion on the review in last Friday’s Post-Dispatch and on the film’s Web site, including background on the Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp for Girls, where the movie is shot. Reviewers say this is a movie you should bring your daughters to, and I’m all for encouraging kids’ aspirations through the example of their peers. That’s why I took M. to see his babysitter in the recital.

You can see the documentary in screenings Tuesday (Apr. 22) and Thursday (Apr. 24) at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium. There is an admission charge for the shows, which begin at 8 p.m. (for admission prices and details see the Webster University Film Series site).
