My granddaughter is playing the clarinet in the 6th grade band at her school and they had a concert last night. They are pretty good for only playing a couple months. It was interesting to see the progression of the older grade bands. I played the clarinet in the Junior High band and for one year in High School, then I turned in my clarinet for pom-poms in the marching band. She is doing something that I never did tho....she is FIRST CHAIR! If you've ever played in a school band, you know that is a good thing. If you haven't, well here is some First Chair Info. We are very proud of you Jessica!
Here is a video taken last night and another one on Webshots. You have to get beyond the first few notes to actually hear them playing together.
We stopped at McDonalds for some ice cream on the way home to celebrate.
Congratulations to Jessica and all the band members at her school for putting on a wonderful concert.
