Band music is lively and spirited and this was an especially fun concert with a movie theme. We heard the main theme songs from “Star Wars”, “Batman”, “The Bridge on the River Kwai”, “Phantom of the Opera” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
When David’s band was not performing, I loved watching other children. I love to see the facial contortions, toe tapping, enthusiastic percussionists, a low five between a couple of flutists, kids staring intently at music scores, lips silently mouthing the beat, ready and expectant faces as they wait for a signal from the director and little girls’ platform shoes. You can imagine the scene on the cover of an old Saturday Evening Post.
