Is It Too Early To Reminisce?

This was a great trip. Although we were all groggy and exhausted on Friday, the master class at Montclair University was a lot of fun and inspired us all. I know a lot of the band kids were slightly disappointed that we didn't get to perform at Lincoln Center or Trump Tower on Friday, but we got more rest and that helped make the next two days much more enjoyable. The Heritage Music Festival was loads of fun, and we brought home loads of awards! Go Northside! The dinner cruise that night was a great way to end the musical part of our trip, as many of us made friends with students from the other Heritage schools.

We were really glad that Sunday's weather was so nice; it was perfect for walking in Central Park and Times Square. Seeing Matilda was simply amazing. It was so much fun and superbly done (us musical kids are a little worried about how extensive our set is going to be next year... We think the stage of Matilda may have given Mr. Lill some crazy ideas...). 

On the ride home, even though the bus broke down and none of us kids on bus 2 got any sleep because we had to keep switching buses, all in all it just made the trip more memorable and the stories more fun to tell. 

Thank you so much to everyone who made this trip possible, mainly the teachers, chaperones, bus drivers, and parents.  And especially Mr. Park for planning most of it. It was a great experience and I hope Northside decides to do it again sometime.
