Last night was Big J’s band concert.
Last year was his first experience in band and this year he is in the intermediate band as one of two percussionists.
First the beginning band performed a few songs and there was a flute solo.
Then the intermediate band set up to perform.
It took almost as long for them to set up as it did for them to perform, they had to have it just right.
There was a clarinet and flute duet.
And a saxophone solo.
As well as the songs the band performed together.
When you realize these kids have only been together as a band for a few months it’s pretty impressive how good they sound.
Big J and his percussion buddy both played the bells.
As well as taking turns on the bass drum and the snare drum.
His teacher Mrs. B is great.
I liked how she used the concert to give us a little music lesson.
The final song was “Jingle Bells” and the audience was able to join in and sing with the band.
It was fun to have family there to support Big J. Grandma Jo and Grandpa Larry, Aunt Sherri, Aunt Julie, Nathan, Taylor and our whole gang was there.
I am so proud of my own little Animal!
