Last night was the All County Strings Festival for Kanawha county. Many of the schools from the county sent their best string players to the Clay Center for a wonderful evening of music.

You see, Isaac plays tenor sax and he plays it … Continue reading All-county band!

He picked up clarinet and can play it pretty … Continue reading Middle school band concert!
