He "Owned It!"

This year in Elementary School Band, Andrew is playing in the Advanced Band. He was chosen out of all of the district trumpet players to have the only trumpet solo at the Christmas performance. And as his director says, "He owned it!" When I asked him before the performance if he was nervous he said he was a little, but more excited. The whole group played a medley of Christmas songs with solos being played inbetween each song by Andrew on trumpet, a trombone, clarinet, saxophone, and flute (another kiddo from Andrew's school).
I was thankful that Andrew's solo was first because I was so nervous for him. I knew he would do a great job but I just wanted it to be over with so I could sit back, breath and enjoy the rest of the program.

The kids gave a great performance and brought the crowd to their feet. You could really tell the kids enjoyed what they were doing.

We were glad that Andrew's grandma and grandpa were able to come and enjoy watching the concert with us. I am sure this will not be the last great concert we will enjoy of Andrew's and hopefully not the last solo that he will "own!"
