It is a rare moment when I ask that you spend the time to read and listen to some of my posts that are a little long. This is one that is worth the time. Those of you who are familiar with the movie Mr. Holland's Opus, will recognize the second half of this symphony. It is featured in the movie. I have listened to the full symphony at least a dozen times. Are you kidding me? No, I love this video. It is what it means to be American. I will continue to listen to it and be amazed. The first time I listened to it I was brought to tears. I played it for my students and they absolutely loved it. I'm not kidding.
Please give this a listen, watch the pictures and you will be moved. I promise. Let me know what you think.
