Many students participated in a practice challenge this semester, tracking each day of practice in a calendar. The top-practicing student would get the opportunity to attend a cello concert with Megan.
The fabulous Jo-Jo Kasten, an 8th grader at Monarch K-8 in Louisville, practiced 81 days from September through the end of November. Wow! Congratulations!
Jo-Jo and I got to attend a house concert last night featuring Ben Sollee. We were blown away by his enormous range of skills: singing, picking, bowing, chopping, plucking, strumming, etc (listen to free streaming here), and check him out below. We had a great time and can't wait to discover more cellists coming to town soon.
I want to take a moment to congratulate all the students who auditioned for Jeffco's All County Middle and High School Honor Orchestras. I'm very proud of your hard work and accomplishments. I have 6 students who made it into both honor orchestras. Congrats!
