Meghan has been a member of her schools string program for four years. Each year they send 4 members to county festival. It is the equivalent of the all county that many of my contemporaries are familiar with. This is suppose to be the top 2 violinist from each group within the school. Meghan has auditioned every year knowing that regardless of audition scores that she would be unable to go because she was too young. Last year they changed the requirement from 4th grade to 5th grade so she had to wait another year. Well this year she gets to go. Meghan is excited.
Tomorrow I will chaperon the rehearsal session which will run during school hours for about 5 hours. On Feb. 27 they will have another rehearsal followed by a concert. I am looking forward to seeing her reach this next step that she has yearned for for several years.
