The article forgot to mention that the Harvest Park Wind Ensemble won second place. Congratulations to all groups involved!

Thanks to the Pleasanton Weekly for giving our kids a chance to have their few days of fame in their local newspaper. Not every child living in such a populated area has the chance to read their name and accomplishment in print.

For all the beating up you take PW for other issues, I wanted to send out a big THANKS for giving our kids their moments!!!

Congrats again to the great students in the Pleasanton school district who always do their best!

Way to go PMS Students(and Harvest Park too)! A big round of applause to Mr. Ravina for this major undertaking. Also, to all the chaperones who kept an eye on the 150 students, you are truly special people. This is further example of the outstanding music programs and outstanding teachers we have in Pleasanton. May we continue to support them and their amazing programs!

Some inaccurate reporting with the placement of the orchestra. Please refer to this YouTube video:
