  •     Sometime before I decided that band class was the meat grinder of my school's curriculum, I went on a trip to Chicago with my school's Wind Ensemble. My class and I travelled to play on the Chigago Symphony Stage, where we faced off against two schools to win the kind of plaque that Moses could...
