and a full weekend, too

kids' orchestra concertCourben had his very first orchestra concert on Friday.  After making it to the concert despite ridiculous traffic, we were pleased to listen to Courben play violin with his friends.  They performed everything from “Hot Cross Buns” to “Good King Wenceslas.”
