Seattle Send Off Concert

As a member of the Wind Ensemble, Mason gets to take part in a trip to Seattle, Washington. The Wind Ensemble auditioned and was one of four high school bands around the US to be chosen to perform at The Western International Band Clinic in November.

The Sunday before they left, they had a "send off" concert. We drove up to hear the Wind Ensemble, a special quartet saxophone piece, and meet Mason's new girlfriend, Ashley.

This band has worked hard. Ed and I think this is probably the best Hawk Band concert we have heard over the years. Yes, that good!

The Wind Ensemble under the direction of Mr. Gunderson. 
 The saxophone quartet performed a fun piece, with Mason on the Bari Sax.
 They received a standing ovation!
 This face! I just want to....
 ....squeeze those cheeks!
 Meet Ashley! 
She joined us for the concert and dinner afterwards at Chili's before we headed back to Spring.
