Since I found only a small photo in The Frederick News-Post in recognition of the 2014 All County Middle School Concert, last Saturday evening, I felt compelled to write my own review.

First to the stage was the 90-member chorus under the direction of Paul Heinemann. Two beautiful solos were featured, and they exhibited excellent control and dynamics. The music was inspiring.

Second to the stage was the 39-member orchestra under the direction of Matt Horwitz-Lee. He worked wonders with these musicians. They had great intonation and worked beautifully as a unit.

Lastly to the stage was the 57-member band under the direction of Kelly Clavell. They played beautifully and the music was so controlled and well-executed. The trumpet solo was excellent.

Bravo to all these 186 gifted kids who worked so hard and to your devoted teachers and guest conductors. You inspired us with your work ethic, devotion and beautiful music. You will have the best memories when you grow up. I look forward to watching you take to the stage for many more years.

You've really pointed out some interesting points in your own review. I also want to point this out on my custom writings that I am doing. You've really done a good job in pointing some interesting facts through your own review.

Did anyone involved with the event contact the FNP & ask them to cover the event?

It's great to read about these young people being involved in something so positive. I wish them and their directors the very best. Keep it up, kids! [beam]

I APPRECIATE THE REVIEW.

FNP decided your event was not political enough to get people hating each other and their advertisers demand that kind of coverage. I wish I could have been there to see the love and unity displayed by those kids.
