All summer Yurina's band class has been practicing hard for a large band competition that happened this past week. This was not just any average recital, this was a very highly attended musical function. Bands of all ages and levels from elementary to college came to play for awards in their divisions in this three day concert competition. Yurina plays the tuba. She can be seen in the far left. We went to the large theater where the concerts were taking place to watch some performances. The theater was able to hold hundreds of people, and it was packed. Yurina's band's practice definitely payed off. They sounded very good. Later that night we found out that they received gold in their age division. 1st place. We were all very excited. The family decided to use this opportunity to celebrate by going out for dinner.
