Another new thing we tried was this improvisatory made up on the spot jam to a power point video Mr. Rikko put together of first and second grade art. This is something we've done in the classroom but never in one of our performances. As cool as it was to watch it was even cooler to be part of. Nice job jazz cats!
Fantastic job everybody at the Concert in the Park on Friday!
One of the things that was really fun and different this year was the fact that, due to the early start of school, the concert date fell in early November. As a result we had reason to try more Halloween themed material, including this piece written by Doug Goodkin, with an arrangement by our kids.
