Nearly two weeks ago, we attended the most amazing concert, although it was a competition actually. Think marching bands on steroids. It was the Midcal Champions Showcase, and we were guests of good friends, Tim and Tracy Neufeld. It was held in the stadium at Fresno State, and the weather was absolutely perfect (unlike tonight where it is 8 p.m. and still 98 degrees.
I'm not sure how to even describe the event. There were eight groups competing. Each group had brass, drums, marimbas, color guard... It was an amazing spectacle.
We first went to the practice field and watched Daniel and the rest of the drummers warm up. That was an event in itself.
