Last week I also had community band practice on Wednesday, and then a very special practice on Thursday night. Friday night was the 75th Anniversary Celebration of the Small Town High School Band. Thursday night we practiced a couple of songs on the field with the current band. For the second song, one of my sisters (who was the drum major) directed next to YS.
(Me: flute & flugelhorn, #7 sibling: french horn & drum major, #10: trombone, #4: trumpet, and #6: percussion)It was a BLAST playing in the stands, although I had forgotten how loud it gets up there. I had never played most of the stand music, so it was interesting sight reading the pieces. Plus, the pace was a bit faster than I remembered. Maybe it was just that it was crowded since there were extra people in the band section. It was still pretty fun, though.

I'm telling you, those that didn't participate really missed out!
