Tonight was Paul’s fall 7th grade concert. It was pretty good as usual. In case I’ve never mentioned it before he plays French Horn. The nearly 200 kids in the 7th grade band play 2 songs with the period 1 band band and then 2 songs with the period 2 band and then one with the combined band. They play in state band competitions and always come home with #1 ratings. The instructors are quite talented at motivating the kids, I guess, because I’m always impressed at how good they sound. Half of the total student body in 7th grade (and 6th for that matter) are in the band.
