Jordan performed in her first band concert Thursday evening. It was fantastic! The 6th grade band played, followed by the 7th-8th grade band, and then the high school bands. I think the 6th grade played so well, they could play with the rest of the junior high band (7th-8th grade). Jordan is 1st chair trumpet for the 6th grade band and got to sit in the coveted 1st chair seat for the concert. It was a great honor to get to watch her and the rest of the band perform so well. It took me back to when Seth and I were in the Bangs Dragon Band and sat up there and played at our band concerts. We reminisced about how our favorite band director Mr. Rusty Baldwin would direct us and many funny memories of those times. I smiled the entire time she played. I wonder if our parents were as proud and thrilled as we were this evening of Jordan.
After the third song ended, the whole band stood for a bow and we clapped and clapped until we were quieted by someone at the microphone making an announcement. What a memory! I can't wait for the next one and for Hunter to have his turn in a couple of years.
I said that I would upload a video for everyone to enjoy, but after multiple tries, I can't get it to upload. Maybe it's too big of a file. Anyway, here are some pictures. Enjoy! For those of you who are unfamiliar, Jordan is the red-head, 1st chair, right in the front-middle of the screen playing the trumpet. We really had GREAT seats for video-taping and picture-taking!
