Kayla wondered why I hadn't blogged about her day yesterday...so here goes!

She went to the Class 1A music contest in Ruthven with seven entries. Two were vocal and five were band. Her first vocal was a duet with Jacob (boyfriend) and they ended up with a II, but were one point from a I. The second vocal was a group of girls, 12 total, singing two songs, they got a I rating. But the big events of the day were of course the band entries. She had solos with her Bb clarinet, bass clarinet and trombone and a mixed woodwind duet and a clarinet trio. All three of her solos and the trio got I ratings and the duet got a II rating.

By the time she was in the same room, with the same judge, for the third time, with her trombone he questioned her if there were triplets of her or just her :) The judge was very complimentary to her performances...said her bass clarinet solo was a very difficult one and she did a great job. He also complimented her on her trombone solo and seemed surprised that she had only been playing it for two years. When she came in for her last performance of the day, the trio, he teased her about coming again and bringing friends.

To say she was freaked out before her performances would be mild...she was so nervous and worried...but just like I knew she would, she did great. Not surprisingly, her headaches have mostly disappeared after yesterday's stress. I am going to miss these days of music after she graduates...after all, between the three kids I have been watching for 7 years!

    Kantahanan is the home of every song. The word kantahanan is derived from the tagalog words "Kanta" which means "Song" and "Tahanan" which means "Home".
