Last night I took Jonathan and Matthew to Mackinaw City to play in the Straits Area Concert Band.
Jonathan's head is visible right in front of the American flag,
and Matthew's forehead is in the back row.
Isn't that a fantastic picture!
It was a really fun time for them. I also took the rest of the quintet, (Andrew, Christopher, and Benjamin), and Kristin along to listen. This group rehearses for an hour--just the trouble spots--then performs after a half-hour break. Sooo...they are all basically sight-reading. It's great practice and sounds amazingly good!
