Rachel and her Clarinet Buddies

Rachel put together a Clarinet Choir with some fellow clarinetists from school.  The group consisted of eight students-some from each of  the three bands at school, and representing all four grades.   It has been fun to hear them practice at our house over the last few months.  On Saturday, they performed  at this years Solo & Ensemble Competition. All their hard work paid off. The judge had great things to say about them and was impressed that it was a completely student run group. Here they are playing Reverie for Clarinet Quartet by Claude Debussy. (We filmed with Brian's camera- sorry but he wasn't able to fit them all in the frame.)
