The four bands at his school maintain a long tradition of excellence. The jazz band band, especially, is quit remarkable and as I heard the various soloists last night I had to keep reminding myself that they were only eight graders. The choirs were a bit more painful. With them I had to keep reminding myself that they were only kids and it was cool for the weaker performers to be there as well as the good ones.
It was rather long but we dragged all the minions...er...kids to it and one out of two did admirably. As for the Youngling? Maybe a sitter next year!
