It's been the week of band concerts this week. First, the middle school band
where she is sometimes serious and focussed,
and sometime her own goofy self.
I had to miss that concert due to my own rehearsal for a concert next week. Bummer, since I missed Nimue's surprise at getting the annual director's award for the eighth-grader who most epitomizes "band student". Good kid.
The following night, jazz band. She had her improvisatory solo in "Spiderman" again. This time around it was longer, more chromatic, and entirely different from the last time I heard it -- she clearly has fun just playing around with the music!
