Jane: Lots of music!

Great musical moments of the past month:

* Robbie and his trumpet quartet play at the beautiful Prairie High School auditorium for State Contest. They sound wonderful, and get a 1.

Gabe's mom made this video.

* WHS band presents an amazing concert as a preview to their appearance at the Iowa Bandmaster's Association. Music includes Hindemith march, Rolling Thunder, and two really difficult and breathtaking pieces, Blackbird (a jazz arrangement based on the Beatles song), and Red Line Tango.

* Robbie plays trumpet at church this morning (May 16).

* Eli gets into the music scene with a performance of "Bartok's Slovak Peasant's Dance" at his piano recital. Later this month, I'll hear him play bassoon, and then percussion, in the FMS band.

I wish we had videos of the last few, but alas! Take my word for it, all of this music was great.
