I don't have a Christmas post for you today. I'm still decorating, and I'll have some pictures to show very soon. In the meantime, I'm sharing some pictures of our son's winter band concert yesterday evening at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
This was officially his last school band concert, which makes me really sad. Those concerts have been a part of our lives for so many years.
When I first began blogging, I wrote a post about the campus at UNCG in the spring, which you can read Here. In that post, I shared some exterior pictures of Aycock Auditorium, and I promised to share some pictures of the interior.
Now, almost two years later, I'm finally showing you those pictures. Last night was the first time we've been able to take some detailed pictures of the inside of this gorgeous building.
Aren't this chandelier and medallion gorgeous? We always sit in the balcony at the concerts, and the chandelier is easily visible.
A close-up of the chandelier...
...and the medallion.
This auditorium is full of beautifully carved and painted woodwork.
Love these garlands.
This grill work is so pretty, and I love the light patterns in these pictures.

The carved arch in the background is over the stage.
More pretty light...
Now for the concert performance.
The conductor is walking onstage now.
Our son plays the French Horn; he's the bearded fellow in the middle row, to the right of the young lady playing the horn. He doesn't normally wear a beard, but he's participating in "No-Shave November" to raise money for his fraternity.
I'm so proud of our son!!! He's been playing the French horn (not an easy instrument to play) for about ten years.
After the concert, we were able to get a few more pictures of the auditorium. I love these wrought-iron banisters.
...and beautiful columns.
I'm fascinated by historic buildings like this; the architecture is so grand. Aycock Auditorium originally opened in 1927; it re-opened in 2010 after a two-year, $19 million renovation.
Thanks for taking your valuable time during this very busy season to visit House at Forest Manor. I hope you'll visit again soon; have a wonderful day!
