Concert tonight

Went to my niece Hannah's band concert tonight. And I gotta say, it was pretty good. I think the pace could have been picked up a bit on a few of the numbers, and I couldn't see Hannah very well because the conductor was in the way, but all in all it was a good show. Probably better than any of my junior high band concerts, in fact.

And! I learned a new fact. One of the pieces they performed was the Colonel Bogey March, which if you had asked me before the concert I would have told you was written by Kenneth Alford. What I learned tonight, though, was that Alford was a pseudonym, and that the composer's actual name was F. J. Ricketts. I did not know that!
