Last Concert

At least the last for 11th grade. Delaney asked if I had a red shirt for him yesterday. I went out and got one during the day since I wanted him to look good. He did.

I had him try it on after school and he came down like this.

We were a touch late walking in and didn't seem him by the entrance. My video was a bit far away, which I didn't like, but thought he did well and loved the selection. They orchestra teacher experimented and worked them in small ensembles, 2-6 people, though this meant Delaney only got one song in.

The various musical groups (jazz, percussion, etc.) sound really good overall. The violins are still shaky, but I think that might be the hardest to learn. It was neat to have them do "Cole's Song" last night with jazz and have a singer come out.

It was also cool to have the seniors lined up on stage and each announce their plans for the future. About 15-20 of them, and amazing that they all have plans. A few military, one aspiring golfer, but mostly college and mostly with some idea of their future.

Another year down, and looking forward to seeing Delaney play next year. Still amazed that he's been in orchestra for 6 years and has improved so much.
