Joshua was in the area for a couple of days this week. I got to speak with him in person for a total of three or four minutes and we spoke on the phone once for about five minutes. On Tuesday, July 29, he and the Crossmen performed at the Kennedy Center.
Believe it or not, this was the first time I actually attended any events there. It's a good thing the performance was free; after paying $17 to park my car, I didn't have money left to buy a ticket! If you want to see them perform, go to this page, scroll down to the bottom and click on the link.
On Wednesday, July 30, the corps competed at Fauquier County High School, which is just down the road from us. I saw some of Joshua's high school friends there, and our corps officers were there as well. The corps played very well and the crowd really enjoyed their show. They applauded at various high points throughout the show and gave the Crossmen a standing ovation after they finished.
