I Can Play On My Trombone

One of the many things I look forward to at the beginning of the school year is to check out the fresh faces of the new faculty of my alma mater, particularly in the spot that seems to be a revolving door as of late.  Let me say that from experience and word of mouth the previous band director will not be missed.  However, the new director had to jump in quickly as days after her arrival, she had to get the band ready for the Festival of Flags parade.  A group of 20 marching down North Michigan Avenue doing the best they could under the circumstances.

Reading the new instructor’s bio in the hometown scandal sheet makes me think that she is very ambitious and hopefully will stick around long enough to bring some of these goals to fruition.  Miss Reardon is a Sandusky native who graduated from UT.  She plays the trombone, cello, piano, and sings.  Very well versed.  One of her goals is to bring musical theatre back to the EHS stage.  AWESOME!  It has been several years since Emily and I (can’t remember who the dramatic director was) brought the “Nifty Fifties” to the stage.  More of a revue of car tunes strung together by a flimsy plot, but fun.

Good luck to the new musical maestro!

    I often think how fun it would have been to go to a small town high school where I might have actually cared about what people and faculty from there are doing nowadays… Neat that you can follow so closely and know what they’re talking about!

    One of the perks of growing up in a small town. Unilke the drawbacks of living where many are placed under a microscope and knowing when someone steps out of line. One of the reasons I’m glad I wasn’t that big on playing sports. But for the most part, it was fun.

    Mom drives the band bus to away football games so I’m sure she wull keep me well informed on their progress. Hopefully, I’ll be able to go to one or two games this year.
