    Hey there,

    We are leaving today for a week of band camp in Russellville. I will be a guest clinician for one of the bands, and this is my first time to do anything like that. I have 8 rehearsals to do what most band directors do in a full nine week period during the school year, and I am very nervous. Please pray for me that I will do a good job and the concert on Saturday afternoon will go well.

    Thanks,

    Joseph Botwinick [​IMG]

    Joseph,

    Ah - memories of band camp in Russleville! I went to a band camp in Russleville when I was in the tenth grade (late 1970s) and that is where I started smoking cigarettes. I quit smoking about five years afterward when I ended up in the emergency room with asthma.

    Hello,

    I am back. Everything went great, but I am exhausted. [​IMG]

    A Clinician is a guest conductor.

    Mark,

    You must have been there during the Witherspoon days, right? I went in the late 80's, but never touched a ciggarette. I am sorry you did, but I am glad you quit.

    We ended up playing Mount Vernon March, African Marching Song, and 1812 Overture. The kids performed really well today and got a standing ovation. Great kids, BTW. They were all very well behaved, very committed, and very attentive. They would all show up for rehearsal every day 15 minutes before time to start and would be ready to start early every day. That made my job a whole lot easier. Thanks everyone for your prayers.
