Alex received two compliments from his orchestra teacher last week. First he stopped him after class to tell him that he heard a particular part of a song that Alex played and that it was "just about perfect." If you know Mr. Cole at all you know he doesn't just hand out these compliments for free!
Then at the end of the week, Mr. Cole stopped Alex again after class and invited him to join the Fargo Moorhead Area Youth Symphony! Alex went to his first rehearsal Sunday evening. He said the music was VERY hard! We're not sure what he needs to do as far as auditionning, etc....but it is really a great compliment to be invited.
