Kyra played in her last symphonic band concert of the school year. The entire concert lasted about two hours, which was pretty long, but there were five different bands playing and an awards ceremony.

It’s so refreshing to listen to high-school bands compared with middle-school bands. The kids are at a whole different skill level, and the music is actually pretty good. Those sixth-grade bands, where the kids only picked up an instrument a few months before, can be kind of painful. Kyra’s come a long way with her flute.
