WOW what a great night!!

Rachel spent yesterday playing her Sax and singing with
The Band of the Prince of Wales Division.
A military band from Tidworth, they came to help the kids learn about professional musicians!
They came to her scool and worked with the gifted and talented musicians (grades 5 and above - even though she is only a grade 4, her teachers put her in the Jazz Band and Big Band so she was eligible!). They played some great music from Military to Abba, Pirates of the Carribean and Titanic! It was absolutely brilliant! They put the show togeether in a day and the standard of music was just mind blowig. The kids had a great time with all the military bandsmen, learning the tricks of the trade and getting helpful hints and tips! They had all been offered a weeks work experience with the band when the time comes which is pretty cool!
We took the two younger ones to see it, poor David was dead on his feet by the end, but was awake enough to tell Rachel she was the best, before slipping off to bed!

No photos yet! I wasn't allowed to take my camera (which i am so gutted about! ) so i have to wait to get them from the local newspaper!

But that is and will be another post!

Have a great day all :)

What a great opprotunity! It's a shame they wouldn't let you bring your own camera to get pictures :( I will look forward to seeing the ones you are able to get from the newspaper.

Btw, I'm not trying to leave your blog off the ones I follow. For some reason every time I try to link to this blog, it ends up linking to your old WordPress blog that you don't even have any more! I have no idea what is going on with it. I tried getting it to link correctly for over a half hour and finally gave up for the day. John said he would help me look at it, so hopefully he can figure it out.
