Happy Holidays to all of you out there! I wanted to check in before the end of the week to post some pictures of the band playing at The Herbert. I wasn't able to make the performance last year, but made it a point to be there to support our band students. The Herbert was decked out for the holidays which added to the ambiance of the historic hotel. The students were assembled in the room off the lobby and were poised for action. There was a great turn out of supporters and I made my way to the front row and took a seat. Band Director, Gail Russ, welcomed everyone and the band was off and running. The band played extremely well. It was obvious that they had practiced a ton and were confident in their abilities. Even though the band is small, roughly eight to ten students, they sounded huge! It's no secret I'm a fan of live music, and these kids helped to strengthen my belief that music rules! Great work everyone, and please, please, please check out the beautiful photos taken by Heidi Murphy! Until Next Time!
