Drumroll please....

Last night we attended a concert by the Whatcom Community College Collegiate Choir. The son of some good church friends was participating in it and we wanted to be there for him. It was an interesting concert. They performed some very interesting pieces -- a la Celtic.

But they saved the best for last when the Sweet Pumpkin Marimba band showed with their 7 (yes...count 'em, 7!!) marimbas and their two bongos. Now for someone who is as percussion/rhythym addicted as myself, this was sheer heaven and they did not disappoint...3 fabulous pieces from Zimbabwe and South Africa and I wore a hole in the floor in front of my seat where my feet couldn't resist tapping!

Thanks so much for going! I wish I could've been there myself!
I've discovered how much I really love percussion as well. I have a few friends who are percussion majors, and I so love that marimba!
