I was in band for seven years.
No, like, really in band. Flute lessons, wind ensembles, marching band. I was drum major of the marching band, for two years. My poor parents went to every recital, concert, competition and game. They listened to Hot Cross Buns until the cows came home. They sat and pretended they were happy to listen to me play the chromatic scale over and over and over. They watched me practice conducting silently as if they understood what I was doing.
I'm forever grateful to them for all of those things, but I think they should be grateful that I quit band when I went to college.
If I had been cooler, I would've started an electronic flute duo ... maybe called, Flutronix? That's what Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins did. The DTH spoke with them about their upcoming performance at Moeser Auditorium.
