What a wonderful way to spend a week

July 31, 2012

I spent this past week in Langley at the annual summer camp for the West Coast Amateur Musician Society. The camp is for ages 5 to 105 and is truly one of a kind!

The campers were just an enthusiastic, courageous, and wonderfully delightful bunch. I also had the chance to work with the youth attending the camp.

I coached the percussionists in the wind ensemble, orchestra, and created a performance entitled The Funky Street Parade with the Youth.

Everyone’s positive energy made for a wonderful time. I can’t remember the last time I was in a musical environment of this magnitude that was so uplifting. Even though we have our struggles and might not hit every note the love of and the passion for music keeps us going.

Best wishes to all my new friends!

    And we really enjoyed you, Timothy. Nothing like being a percussionist when nearly 105
