Tuesday night's band concert was quite good. The music was well chosen: interesting for the audience and challenging for the musicians, but not too challenging, so that the kids were able to have a real feeling of success. Here are the kids warming up.
Once the actual program began, the audience paid rapt (mostly) attention. But during warmup, I counted the number of cell phones in use in the audience, and it appeared that there were 1.5 phones for every two persons. Or thereabouts.
In all fairness, I should say that some of them switched over from checking their email to documenting the performance.
Some of them were getting their daily fix of Pinterest.
