Hendey Men Music Update

For those in my family keeping tabs on the musical exploits of my sons, the following are the results of this week's round of auditions:

Eric -
University High School Orchestra - Principal Bass
University High School Jazz Band - Bass Player
Fresno Youth Philharmonic Orchestra - Bass Second chair

Adam -
Fresno Youth Symphony Orchestra - Clarinet

Don't worry, I'm sure the devotion to traditional Irish music will continue but with little forays into the worlds of jazz and classical music as well.

Here are a few recent You Tube videos to enjoy:

I love it, Lisa! Yes, they are gifted! How long have they been taking music lessons? Do they perform in public?

Thanks everyone for your kind comments! The boys have been playing Irish music for about a year. Neither of them had lessons - they taught themselves (the university of You Tube!). Now Eric has been taking a few months of bass lessons and Adam is studying clarinet. Every Tuesday, they play with our local folklore society at a family pub - traditional Irish music. It's helped them to learn a lot of new tunes.
