Carlsons, Carlsons, Carlsons! With the Costa bands still apart, Mr. Carlson builds up the now even bigger Carlson Band in this slamming conclusion to the #CB3 series!
Please enjoy the latest video from Mr. Joel Carlson and the Mira Costa High School Jazz 1 with supporting cast members from Jazz 2.
With the school shut down for a few weeks and their trip to the National Concert Band Festival and National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in Washington D.C. canceled, Mr. Carlson seeks a new hope for the Bands...
Here's a link to a podcast, produced by Mira Costa alumna Amber Van Buskirk, Class of 2012, that includes an interview with the choir director, Michael Hayden, discussing the spring break Choir trip to Italy scheduled for Holy Week this year. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it had to be cancelled. It's very poignant and also insightful.
Thank you, Michael, for putting into words all that many are feeling today.
Please listen if you'd like to hear more about what this amazing trip might have been and the solace we are left with in the face of this pandemic.
Michael's interview starts around 13:30.
