Tonight is the night. The sixth grade band concert. Seven elementary schools will attempt to come together as one. I have mixed emotions. This can go one of two ways; really well or really badly. I’m guessing it will sound something like breaks squealing, dogs barking and cows bellowing all at the same time.
I am pleased that our school district still offers band at the elementary level. I know that the music teacher gives all she can and the students need to show off their “skills.” Yet is it wrong of me to wish for earplugs?
I myself am not musically inclined. My husband is. Thank goodness the kids have his musical talent and not mine. In fact, our youngest- the one playing tonight- is using his old clarinet.
“Hot Cross Buns” here we come!
