Navy Band Mid-South Quintet

Here's one of the things I look forward to every summer -- a visit from the Navy Band to the libraries I work at. I usually invite them to come out and play during our summer reading club activities. They always play a mix of music, from marches to patriotic, to jazz and classical. The songs most well received were the 'William Tell Overture' and the 'Pink Panther' but, I think the kids enjoyed them all! Some pix I took at the event:










I especially like the fact that the guys take the time to explain what the name of their instrument is, play a few bars so the kids can hear what they sound like. It's nice to expose these little ones to live music - and some styles they don't hear every day.

I think that is so cool the at a LIBRARY a BRASS BAND is playing. No shhhh today. Live music is becoming a lost art in my opinion. Children don't have the experience often with all pre-recorded electronic manufactured music. I would have loved to be there.

What great pictures Jane *VBS* Sure do wish I could have been there to hear them also. The pics of the kids are just great...the colors of their clothings forms its own pattern in some of the pictures...love it!
Go Navy!! Hugs, Finn
