Alex joined the band this year. We had the pleasure of seeing his class in concert! He goes to the High School twice a week with grade five kids from the other two schools. They've only been playing for about 7 weeks now, due to the late start in school. I think they did a fantastic job. It's so great to hear him practicing his clarinet (he's in the second row on the left, in glasses --- yup another first for him this year). I really hope he decides to go all the way through band to graduation as we also had the pleasure of listening to the grade six band, the 7 and 8 band, and the high school band.
I had a bored toddler to contend with while I was trying to film this so the first bit of the video is shaky and has some bored toddler background noise. The nice thing about living in a small community is that there is always someone around that you know. One of my foster parents kindly offered to film for me. She did a great job. So thank you to her!
Anyway, enjoy our budding musician's first time in concert! (And thanks again, Mom and Dad, for shopping for his concert ensemble).
