My Favorite Composer

I didn't bother to put Benjamin's composition performance on my blog because Sarah Jayne put it on hers!  The composition is called Battle for Skandia, and was written w/ the book of that title in mind. The book is by John Flanagan and is one in a series that our family has enjoyed read aloud.
Benjamin's song is long....10 minutes worth, but you can get the gist of it in the first few minutes....
This is the first time Benjamin has every conducted anything (he did conduct for all the practicing of his piece, but first performance conducting!
Somehow, the proud mama didn't get any pictures!....will have some from friends later...but, for'll just have to go and watch the video!


  1. Oh how nice! I will enjoy the video as soon as we can gain some bandwidth on our satellite connection here. I'm sure it will be lovely!

  2. Wow that was amazing! How long did it take him to compose that? You all seem so talented in your family.


  3. Beautiful!!! Such Talent! I hope he will continue to do more...
