Tonight was the end of the year, Band Awards Concert at Clinton's Jr. High. I just have to say, it was AWESOME! I can't believe how good these kids are! The music program is just excellent! Clinton played in the Jazz Band, Drumline, Symphonic Band and Full Orchestra. In Jazz Band, he plays drum set, and tonight....he was AMAZING! During one song, he had this drum solo that just went on and on! He totally wailed on the drums! I've never heard him play like that before! I was sitting there with the video camera, trying to keep it steady while I just cried and cried! I am so proud of him! It makes all those private lessons worth it...for sure! He was also awarded the Outstanding Musician Award....right after his big number...and everyone just cheered and cheered!
Clinton's dad and step mom were able to come down today from New Mexico to see him play...they've never been able to make it down before. I think it was the perfect night for them to see him do his stuff! Cheez will be capturing the video tomorrow, so, hopefully we'll be able to put it up for people to see really soon!
I just LOVE nights like this! WOO HOO Clinton!
