This year William has been playing in their school orchestra. I hope he has been enjoying it- he doesn't really like to admit it to any of us. His school participated in a "Monster" Concert this last week, which basically was a huge orchestra performance including 21 different schools in the area. I think it was a neat experience for all the kids to perform with so many others.
Notice the basses in the very back. Out of the 21 schools they had 6 basses and our William was one of them. (He's on the very end- towards center stage. He also helped us out by wearing a suit that made it easier to recognize him.)

Such a stud.

I tried recording parts of the performance. Here is a little taste. Sorry for the wobbliness- guess I was just too "moved" by the music- or I can't hold a camera steady.
We're glad that William has chosen to try something new with his talents. Love that kid!!!
