Winter is Coming
Our oldest son was selected to the All County Honors Orchestra for middle school. Over the past two weeks, our son along with other members of the orchestra came together for three long grueling practice sessions to put on an incredible concert. The kids had to go to school early, stay after school, miss classes and catch buses back and forth to practice sessions. These kids weren't just playing snippets; they were playing entire songs. The song selections were Diana the Huntress, Afterburn, Tango Espressivo, For the Star of County Down, City of Stars and Game of Thrones. For the Star of County Down is my son's favorite, but I liked Game of Thrones because it was the only one I was familiar with. That being said, every song the kids played was absolutely phenomenal. Check out their rendition of Game of Thrones (unfortunately our son is being blocked by the music stand).
