Mr. Gillett has done a great job since becoming the new band teacher. I look forward to their spring concert when Savanna says they will be performing a lot of Beatles songs.

Savanna and the High School Band
This has been an exciting year for Savanna in band since the eighth graders have been included in the high school band. They had a wonderful concert last week. Below is Savanna in front of the Christmas tree in the Palm Theatre. As you can see above, I didn't have a good seat for taking photos! We sat way too close to the stage. Luckily Sol Chase is in the band so his dad, local photographer Merrick Chase, was there and was working his magic with his camera. Merrick's website is Telluride Photography. Merrick was super nice in letting me share his photos when I e-mailed him and asked if he had any photos of the trombone section. Check out Savanna's reindeer antlers! She is keeping all of the other trombone players in line, too. The photographer's son, Sol, is seen on the left playing bass guitar. If you have been to any of the festivals in Telluride, chances are you saw Sol performing around town with mandolin and singing. He is quite talented!
