Ostaszewski: Playing Sweet, Sweet Music

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

This isn #x 2019; t precisely news – I indicate Ozzy Osborne knewlearnt about it last year – however I missed it the firstvery first time performances by the children of the Louisville Leopard Percussionists went viral. Only recently did I view their rendition of a medley of Led Zeppelin songs played on the xylophone. More accurately, played on a multitude of xylophones.It is exceptional. These kids are talented.Another video reveals the Leopards performing Ozzy Osborne #x 2019; s #x 201c; Crazy Train #x 201d; on xylophones. Ozzy obviously loved it so much he donated $10,000 to the Leopards.For those, like me, who had never become aware of the Louisville Leopard Percussionists prior to now, it is a music program for 7-to 14-year-olds in the Louisville, Kentucky, area.I came throughoutfound it online last week while checking outchecking out the Patriots. A link took me to a YouTube video of the Louisville Leopards playing the Zeppelin collection. The music space they carried out in was packed with exactly what appears like a dozen xylophones, along with keyboards and drum sets, in addition to other miscellaneous percussion instruments.The group is excellent. I then watched other videos they #x 2019; ve published, such as their xylophonic take on #x 201c; Crazy Train #x 201d; and #x 201c; Mo #x 2019; Better Blues. #x 201d; All of it is incredibly cool. I commented to my college-aged son Kevin that if his elementary-grade music performances had actually been half this excellent, I never would have dreaded going.Then I realized I too once participatedtook part in school concerts made upconsisted of youngsters with uncertain skill that my moms and dads, due to federal parenting guidelines, were compelled to attend.Of course, I

went to school back in a time when music class was still part of the regular curriculum. We also had art class. It was a different world then.Students of my generation were taught to appreciate the arts by taking parttaking part in them, therefore reinforcing the reality that most of us were entirely talentless.A ceramic pencil holder I made in the 5th grade stresses this point.(Or possibly it was meant to be a drinking cup, or a flower

vase. Or a paperweight. I can #x 2019; t recall what I intended it to be and it #x 2019; s hard to inform by looking at it.)When my mommy died numerous years earlier, I discovered that

she had kept my artistic development regardless of the fact that by any unbiased requirements, it was a ceramic debacle.The holder/cup/vase/ paperweight is uneven, uneven, crudely built and awful looking. The reality I remained in fifth grade and not 3 years old when I made it is awkward. Archeological sites of ancient civilizations, when everything was made by pounding one rock against another, uncover bowls daily that are nicer.

The diamond dust that when provided his canvases their hot shimmer is no place to be found in Misaligned, which is all about rushed dreams, derailed expectations and the yawning gaps in between what is assured and exactly what is delivered.
