I spent the day away from the studio with some very talented kids from Shawnee Mission West High School. The orchestra played at the State Large Ensemble contest today and I was privileged to accompany them. In addition to West I heard several other excellent orchestras from other schools which made for a very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon.
The highlight of the day was listening to our kids who played magnificently. Our principal took time out of his day to support the students and let out a big "whoooop!" when they finished. I'm glad he did that because the rest of us moms there felt the same way! Way to go West Orchestra! More pictures here.
