First of all, I thought we had an excellent concert on Tuesday night! Congratulations to all of my students and thank you for all of your contributions to that performance. Thanks also to all of the families and friends that came out to support our musicians at the Back In Action Concert – I think that was the highest attendance EVER for our fall concert. Looking forward to the next one! Additional thanks goes out to our Sr. Concert Band for their four performances for out Remembrance Day Ceremonies on Friday. We are certainly "back in action" now!
