I remember last year we did some easy ones, then busted out Noisy Wheels of Joy on like 3 weeks practice.

Last years concert was fun. One of the girls is in choir, and did a song where it was her, a piano and a flute.

There we did a bunch of section ensemble song, then 4 as a combined band. Lots of fun, lighthearted stuff with that one serious one of Noisy Wheels.

Too bad I graduated last year.

We start in August, so we had a Fall Concert in November. No expectation of cheesy Christmas tunes from parents! YES! Next concert is in March.
