I did have a surprise at the Showcase concert in the last piece, Happy Blues. My live-wire bassist Dontae, who only began this year, played a completely new part that he had made up based on the funky cello part!! This involved jumping around the fingerboard like a jazz pro! I will have to give him some solos in the future - if not he will make up his own!!
Little Reenay the cellist asked me when our next concert will be ... it was generally a very happy, enthusiastic group yesterday at Papatoetoe East Primary (after the Showcase concert).
