Sahel Academy Orchestra

Playing with the orchestra (perhaps more accurately, music ensemble) was a new and a good experience for Brendan this year. He is much more confident and comfortable playing with a group and he enjoyed the other musicians as well as the director. Since the director and his family are leaving for a 6 month furlough in less than a week, the music group will not resume until next January - we are all disappointed as our family was quite impressed with how well they did and how far they came (from the beginning of the year). They played several pieces at the graducation ceremony, including "Pomp and Circumstance," as the graduates rode in on the backs of camels... only in Niger!
