Last night was the combined concert for 5th and 6th grade band and strings ensembles. Emily played in the 6th grade band and even had a couple solos. Below is the video of just the 6th grade band.
Great job, Emily.
So begins the many years of attending year-end band and orchestra concerts – by my estimation, about 8 years (unless you also count college). Emily participated in the Shawnee Mission South area band concert the other night – bands from the several elementary schools, the middle, and the high school.
Despite having the concert in the high school gym with the audience sitting on the bleachers, it was a very nice concert. We’ve attended Anna’s string concerts for the past 2 years, but now we get to enjoy both girls playing.
Emily has progressed at an amazing rate considering she only started the flute at the beginning of this school year. Her many years of piano have prepared her well. She’s anticipating starting private flute lessons this summer.
