Yvonne Gerber: Appreciating talent
December 12, 2009
To the editor:
I would like to thank the Yampa Valley Brass, Mr. John Bolton and the Moffat County High School jazz bands for another very enjoyable evening.
These are very talented people. The program is filled with Christmas cheer, upbeat music and humor.
After an evening like that, I cannot imagine that the Moffat County School Board would cut a program (if the rumors are true) that instills a love of music, the skills to play and the adaptation of this attitude to other learning areas.
It is a real joy to see young people develop a skill that will follow them all of their lives.
I would encourage the entire community to attend any performance of the MCHS band or choir groups.
These are talented young people, and I praise them and the teachers who guide them.
