A Night at the Concert

She's in the back left, playing the glockenspiel.
Last night, we attended the school district's Band Gala.  The bands were divided into 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, and the high school.  My daughter is in the high school band, and she played two different instruments last night; bells and glockenspiel.  We tried to get pictures, but the lighting was not good at this venue, so the shutter was staying open too long.  Alas, almost every picture turned out to be a blur, but there are a couple worth keeping, just for the memory. 
All gussied up and ready to go!

The kids sounded great!  Each band did a very nice job, which is no small task, since several schools are combined and they all have different band teachers.  Having them do so well after bringing them together, and being led by a conductor they're not used to, really speaks well of our band program.

Of course I'm not biased or anything, but I'm sure my daughter was the prettiest girl there!


  1. Just found your blog! You should have told me!

    Yes, the concert was good, and your daughter is a beauty!

    You should come visit me. I could help you learn to cross-stitch. You can always pick a small project like a coaster or something, so you can enjoy the results faster, until you learn to love it and get faster. :0)
