More Judy

Judy played the cello during high school. The focus on this photo is not great, but it does give a little bit of a look at the added on room in the Penrose house. By the way, Judy was reallly good on the cello. She even mastered vibrato.

The first three siblings were in the band, the last three in the orchestra. Talk about soft!

Ann said...

Not soft - just smart. Who wants to march on the football field in the middle of a blowing snow storm with the temperature in the single digits. There still was District Music Festival, All State Orchestra where I was first chair Viola until the director realized I couldn't do vibrato - I had a choice, either hit the right note or do vibrato - I was a one track- minded viola player. Besides, when I played on the lower strings it made my teeth rattle. I suppose that doesn't sound very sophisticated.
However, the exposure we all got to music was so valuable. To this day I remember Mother's love for classical music and how we would listen to the hour of classical music over KODI on Saturday mornings. I learned a great appreciation for classical music from her.

And yet, there were some really nice fall days, and I have to admit that I did love the marching then, the parade down main street before the games, and marching down the field at half time and doing the formations while playing a stirring Sousa number. There was something exihilerating about it for me.
