Up til 1:30 working. Out of bed at 6. Working, laundry, waking, feeding, driving Iz to camp. Came home. Wrote a mailing, did more laundry, got a shower and back out to pick up Josh at sleepover and then over to Iz's concert! The last day of "Music For Youth" camp.
The band was comprised of 5th & 6th graders & their unh student teachers/band directors.They played in the recital hall at the Paul Creative Arts Center.
They sounded wonderful.
And I realized then why Josh hasn't been so into playing since school's out -- it so satisfying to play with a group and make good music. There were a few ensembles and the band pieces were actual band arrangements (the music the 4th grade band played this last year only included one actual arrangement) The saxophones played "Chester" with their counselor Chris. And afterward - - cake!
