You're fooling yourself..

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

I found this on YouTube today... I could imagine myself sitting in the auditorium watching my child in the school band participating in this performance.

It's a little long, just under six minutes, but I couldn't tear my eyes (and ears) away.

I couldn't stop smiling.  Enjoy!

That's so cool, and you are right if that were one of our kids we would be puffed up proud

I know... I sat through so many recitals... I wish they were anywhere near that good.

Alan- first of all, I have to apologize to my parents and aunt and uncle who sat through my piano recitals. And when I was in our school orchestra, I might have practiced more if the goal was to play with Tommy Shaw!!! All I can say is WOW. Haven't listened to STYX in a while. May have to tomorrow.

I know... I'd have been a little star-struck.  I imagine that these high-schoolers have no idea who he is, or why there was a band named after twigs.

Wow, that must have been an amazing experience for all the orchestra students, the chorus and the parents. What a wonderful concert. Nothing like any school performances I've ever been a part of!
