Musical weekend!

This is a very musical weekend for us!

Austen left yesterday with all the bands at his school for their annual "spring trip." This year they went to Corpus Christi and all bands (varsity, concert, symphonic, and wind ensemble) performed in a competition yesterday afternoon at Texas A&M's Corpus Christi Performing Arts Center. They will spend the rest of the weekend in some condos they've rented -- on the beach. They'll all have a great time!! (They return on Sunday afternoon.)

Parker and all the bands at his school are going to the Galveston Southcoast Contest today for a competition there among intermediate/middle school bands from all over the area. They'll play at The Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston and return this evening.

Kira's school choir performs this morning in the 9th Annual Children's Music Festival of Houston, along with many other elementary school choirs. Kira's choir performs at 9 am, and they hope to win first prize!

No photos, of course, since I'm not attending any of these. Thankfully, there'll be end-of-the-year band performances in May, and I can go to all those.
