Back to share a little bit more about Justin's trip to NYC. This is the DHS guys a cappella group, "Fly Check", in Central Park. Justin is in the front row on the far left. The guys spent most of their first day in Central Park roaming around and playing frisbee. Must be a guy thing. ;)
If you're interested, here's an article from our local paper about the boys http://www.daily-chronicle.com/articles/2008/04/14/features/learning/learning01.txt , a link to some great photos of their practice and performance at Lincoln Center http://gallery.rossmedia.com/FlyCheck08?page=1 and a very complimentary recap of the competition http://pitchperfect-thebook.blogspot.com/2008/04/icca-finals-now-with-jazz-hands.html.
Can you tell, I'm just a little bit proud of him. Justin has a passion and gift for music. He's been a percussionist for 5 years, has taught himself how to play piano, guitar and a bit of trombone and just this year has discovered how much he enjoys singing. He's in madrigals, guys a cappella and the varsity choir at school.
I love this photo of Justin and his bud, Brett at Lincoln Center. They've been friends since the fifth grade. Brett is an outstanding trombonist and has been the inspiration for our youngest son, Jacob, who started the trombone this year. More importantly, he's a great guy and an awesome friend. I'm so pleased that Brett and Justin got to share in the experience of performing in NYC. Congratulations guys!!!
