Seeing children perform for any amount of time is heartwarming and really puts me in the spirit of Christmas. As others say, leave quietly between songs if you can.
Just watched an HBO 1/2-hour documentary yesterday about the Louisville Leopards in Manhattan. If you haven't seen it, it's wonderful and uplifting.
Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!
Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!
Any effort is better than no effort!

When my kids were young it use to make me furious that people would start to leave right after their kids performed, in the middle of the program, while the rest of ours were still waiting in the wings.....if you don't want to miss it, I would recommend sitting in the last row so as to not interrupt the show or the parents waiting and watching patiently.

I think it would be ok to leave early.

Have left after son's high school orchestra performance [several other people were doing the same]. Didn't have time to stay for the Choirs, etc.

Great suggestions to sit in the back. I would add to sit on the aisle seat so that you don't have to walk in front of anyone when you leave.

I liked the suggestion to sit in the back.
"It is easier to raise good children than to fix bad men" by Fredrick Douglas.
After unexpectedly stumbling into a musical performance at the library, I got the hankering to get myself even more into the holiday spirit by attending the children's chorus concert at my local elementary school. However, I looked up the school calendar, and the timing is so that I would have to leave about a half hour before the show actually ends. Even if I do so inconspicuously, would it be too offensive? Should I just not go?
