Well, the senior tuba/sax got the solo, but... it wasn't all that great and the piece was a pretty lousy arrangement anyway. When that piece was finished, Gram looked at me, wrinkled her nose, and said, "I didn't like piece..." That says it.
#1 was fine about it, but by the time I got to see him in the afternoon, he'd had a while to process... #1 told me that he congratulated the kid and shook his hand. (He's a good boy!!)
When we got in the car, we told #1 that the tuba hadn't done such a good job with the solo and we liked the way #1 played it best. LLB told him that the tuba didn't have anything on him. She's such a good sister!
LLB's group did a terrific job yesterday! They played four selections including Pirates of the Caribbean. LLB was 3rd chair and was the most professional looking trumpet out there. She's very serious, holds her trumpet at the correct angle and sits straight in her chair. She and HP had a marvelous time.
The funniest thing with those two was this:
They had finished playing. They were coming to sit in the audience to hear the HS group. LLB had returned her bow tie to the bin, but HP had not. HP's mom mentioned his bow tie and he replied, "I don't know what to do with it." LLB reached up and started to unhook his bow tie. "No.. I know how to do that! I don't know where it goes." She dropped that bow tie like a hot potato, gave a little shrug, and said, "Oh.". Then she dragged him off to put it in the bin.
I turned to R and laughed! Her response, "They are just like a little old married couple".
OMG! You had to be there to see it. It was pretty funny!!
