As one of the violin payers in said festivities I take umbrage at Mr. Wilson's remarks.

We suffered for our art - imagine walking with a violin wearing a stripped blaser not only past Sharston but Brookway High culture vultures, and sustaining their jeers and jibes, night after night and year after year; surviving Jesset's "gentle" verbal ministrations during practice after school and during lunch breaks, just to be told twenty years later that we sucked.

You insipid lot that sat, watched and cringed were lucky we didn't take after you with our bows and rosin blocks. We did it for the school. Where's your appreciation buddy?

The only thing worse than doing something well for others and not being appreciated, is doing something badly for others, knowing it, being embarrassed while doing it, and then being reminded of that fact twenty years later. Thanks Martin! ; {
