Sixth grade band. Not as painful as fifth grade band.
Sid update! He visited the girls today, lots of romping about… he ran around like a dog that’d never been injured. But the girls did wear him out and he was pretty gimpy after about an hour. That’s Sid, Gracie, Zuzu sometime this past spring/summer.
This is mostly for family, no knitting today. I won’t feel bad if you skip away.
Blogwise, I’m hoping to actually embed this video clip. I’m using instructions found here. Hard to tell… on the preview the embedded clips look empty. OK…didn’t work, so don’t visit THOSE instructions. Anybody out there on wordpress get this to work? Some kind person sent me some info, but I’ve lost it (sorry!).
Nick plays the saxophone. On the far right are three trombone players in the back row. Next row are the sax’s, a brown headed girl, a long haired blonde boy, and Nick, who looks very short here.
Here is the link, it is a 40 second clip.
That’s the Big Band Bop… a jazzy number. The kids said it was their favorite, even though it was the most difficult. They also played a piece called Anasazi… one would think it would be interesting… it was horrible! Like a very very very slow funeral dirge. Even the kids complained. I forget what the third number was called.
