Congratulations on a wonderful concert last night. You sure know how to connect the dots! Further, the fact that you shared it with that audience of high school musicians and their parents made it that much more powerful. Kudos to all, with an extra round of applause to Kaelah for her glossy piccolo solo in Chimes of Liberty, and also of course to David for his fabulous solo performance of Scherzo. (I don’t think I’ve ever seen high school euphonium and tuba players move as fast as when they jumped to their feet when he finished!)
I look forward to what we’ll be able to do together during the next couple of weeks. You are a special group of musicians and your commitment to one another and our art is what it’s all about.
