The school next door

The school next door

Next door to the Village at the Harbour where I work is Spring Street International School, a private institution that is apparently gaining in popularity, at least they are in the middle of a huge campus expansion.

Their talented students occasionally favor us with a concert in the great room at the Village. I can appreciate the pensive look of the bass player with his hands in his lap, as all three in the photo are nearing the cusp of adulthood tuning-up and ‘girding up their loins,’ as the scriptures say, ready to give it their best. One advantage of having the Village right next door is an audience for which to play and gain performance experience. Granted, it’s likely not the age group for which they would LIKE to be playing, but we’ll do in a pinch! And music is the international language.
