My family attended the Celebration of the Arts (CR, April 12) because I had an eighth- grade son who was performing with the Representation Band. This was my first experience with this evening and I was very amazed at the talent portrayed on the stage. I was blown away by how wonderful the young middle schoolers sounded. They didn’t play like children and having driven my son to many practices, I know how hard they worked.
I am very disappointed however that the only pictures that appear in the paper and online are of the events after intermission. The children in the first act worked hard, as did the dancers and musicians/singers, yet barely even got a mention in the paper. What happened to the first act of the show?
Thank you for your attention.
