Aaron sang his Senior Recital on Sunday afternoon.
He and I have had a three-year road. Along the way, he’s been an all-district chorister for four years; an all-state chorister for two; an all-national NAfMe choir member this school year; and a SWACDA all-divisional choir member this year. He’s taken Gold ratings at state contest both time he went with vocal solos. And he’s played cello in his school orchestra, soloed with the choir and the orchestra, soloed with the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra holiday pops concert, and found time to be a competitive swimmer.
And be top in his class at Pattonville High School.
Kids like this make a teacher’s life heaven. I love this guy to pieces.
I shall miss Aaron tremendously when he goes off to Miami University of Ohio in August. We get a few more sessions of singing, though, in the midst of my travels and his summer schedule.
