7th Grade Band...Christmas Concert


...Scout's Band is down to only 2 trumpets (I think they originally had 5)...I thought they sounded pretty good...

...Scout was playing First trumpet - he had 'agreed' to play Second - apparently it's usually just a toss up between the two of them - but then the night of the concert the other trumpet decided that she didn't want to try 'the high notes' during the concert - so they switched music at the last minute...without even telling their director...in general probably not a good idea...but it worked out fine...I think Scout generally prefers to play First...Enjoy!...

  2. He sounds awesome. I love how kids make decisions on their own. I wonder what the expression was on the director's face. ;)

  4. Oh this took me back! I played the saxophone for a lot of my youth and performed in MANY similar concerts. So great that you got some video for him to be able to remember the moment.
