Today the 6th grade band students at Lake Middle School performed the winter concert, their second concert in the school year 2009-2010. Their first band concert took place on Dec. 3, 2009.
About 150 students participated in the performance in three groups, one for the first year band students, and two for the second year band students. They also played together for the last piece “School spirit.”
My favorite from all 12 pieces performed today was “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” by Mozart.
The concert was conducted by the Band Director at Lake Middle School, Mr. Roderic VanScoy.
My son plays clarinet in his second year. I wish he could treasure the opportunity of having band lessons at school and spend some time practicing at home.
Practice makes perfect. It’s especially true when it comes to playing an instrument.
