It’s been awhile since I have posted anything and I cannot decide if it is because I have the winter blues or if we have been busy or if it is the effects of the water chaos and snow. Speaking of snow, we are covered again and stuck inside with the latest polar blast…like the other 250 million or so people in the country who are affected by it.
Anyhow, one interesting thing we did get into recently was Isaac’s involvement with the Marshall University Honor Band. The Honor Band is an honor for middle school students. Each school’s band director nominates their best students for a one day seminar with the Marshall University School of Music staff. Students from the tri-state area come together in one day and get excellent instruction throughout the day that pinpoints their specific instrument. Later in the evening, the students put on a concert.
What makes this concert especially impressive to me is that the band kids have never seen the music prior to the start of the day. They learn the music and somehow pull together as a group in a single day. It’s amazing but really so awesome to see and hear! So, take a listen if you please…maybe you can forget about the polar vortex and poison water for awhile!
