One Last Song

Last night we attended a band and orchestra concert at Nick's school. They only have music classes for lower grades and only practice a couple of times a week, so Nick's experience really showed. He was especially proud of his part in the Star Wars theme song.

As we applauded the students at the end, I couldn't help but think that this will probably be the last high school band concert we'll attend and I got a little teary-eyed. But maybe we'll be able to arrange a concert at El Sembrador next year—Nick's One-Man-Band Show!

What an opportunity Nick has been given to come alongside younger musicians at school! I also think he's been an encouragement to the music teachers who administer an under-appreciated and under-funded arts program. Certainly his enthusiasm is contagious! God has given him a wonderful ministry at Los Pinares and we are so grateful he had this opportunity to share his love of music.

The baritone may look a little worse for the wear, but Nick put it to good use!
