Yesterday was a very busy day. I hit the wall about the time Phil finished helping me post the pics. Now I have rested enough to add a little description to go with the grainy photos.
The day was a logistical challenge. We dropped Cassie off for the first band rehearsal at 8:00 am. They were sent their musical parts ahead of time to practice on their own and the day of the concert was the first time this band had been together. Her day was spent working toward the evening performance.
I went home to do the normal Saturday things.
Larry and I returned for the concert. The overall view of the band is always better from the balcony. We were not disappointed. I do not think there was a bad place in the chapel for hearing. Again, we were not disappointed.
The college band played first.... WOW. They were followed by the band made up of high school students. WOW, again. This was one of those moments when I think back to the first minutes of a tomato colored newborn of 18 years ago and the words from Larry were, "Look at those long delicate fingers. She's going to be a musician." He knew.
