Whew! What a week! I hope you all had a great September. Hard to believe it’s almost gone, huh? The Bullettes had a whirlwind of activity, including a TV appearance in Richmond and then performing at the prestigious Castleton Theatre for their Castleton in Performance series. We got a lot of good feedback, but most important of all the feeling in the band was very good. Check out our photos here, thank you Suzette Niess! You can view a video from the performance here, featuring Caeley Niess on trumpet playing Portrait of Louis Armstrong! We had such a great time incorporating the high school students into this performance, many thanks to Daniel Lyster-Mensh, Caeley Niess, Sam Sandler, Catie Story, Ingrid Winkler for joining us!
