Lex’s school participates in a District Band event where selected students from 25 different schools come together for two days of musical fun. This year Lex auditioned and was selected to attend. He was thrilled! The event was all day yesterday (he got to miss school!) and today, with a final performance for family and friends this afternoon. It was a long drive (apparently a big district!) but we had fun and definitely enjoyed the music!
The high school band performed first and they were fantastic!! I didn’t record much of their performance, but I loved these golden bongo drums and wanted to share.
Then the middle school band was up. Lex played the bass drum for the first song, the symbols in the second and third songs, and the castanets in the fourth song.
We had to stop and charge the car on the way home, so we invited Macy to join us for dinner. Macy was also in the band. She plays trombone! We had a loud and silly ride home, with a stop to recharge us (pizza) and the car (electricity) on the way.
