La función de despedida

Last week, we brought our time in León officially to a close with our annual función de despedida, which featured songs, plays and our own DeForest as master of ceremonies.

The festivities began with a song performed by our choir (led by instructor Mark Hoff) and then a solo by Kat Jones.

After, Tamara´s theater group presented the play Se vende una mula. 

To close the first act, Emmi and Sam Allen performed a humourous duet, much to the amusement of classmates and host families alike.

The second part of evening was opened with a quartet, performed by Amanda, Deforest, Alyssa and Moni.

Emmi followed up with a solo.

Next was the theater group Bea and I directed, presenting the play Don Sabino Curatraumas. The final song was performed by the whole choir.

We closed the evening with a PowerPoint showcasing some of the highlights from our weeks here and each student taking a moment to personally thank their families. By the time the last student spoke and each libro de recuerdos and evey flower had been passed out, there were not too many dry eyes.
