All About That Bass (Clarinet)

About the Trip...

Lacey has been personally invited to play Bass Clarinet in Europe with the American Music Abroad Company.  This company has been bringing kids across Europe for over 30 years! Many of you might have had this opportunity as well, and can attest to this great opportunity!  The tour will travel across Europe over the course of nearly 3 weeks, and the kids will perform in locations such as Brussels, Holland, Germany,  and more!  There will be pictures posted along the way :) While she plays three different clarinets, she will only be bringing her Bass Clarinet with her to Europe.  She has devoted years to her love for music, and this is her chance to show it off.   The kids will be playing free concerts for the public across Europe, while also taking in the rich culture and history around them.  They will have the opportunity to stand in the very places they have learned about in school! And then PLAY for the people as a way of saying Thank You! 

This trip will not only give the kids a chance to play the music they love, and see the world, it will also teach them to be as responsible and as kind as they can be.  They will be representing US while traveling abroad.  They will be composed, fun, lighthearted, and KIND while abroad. They will be washing their clothes BY HAND, in a sink. LOL.  Please, make her wash her clothes in sink. I beg you ;) 

Meet Lacey...

She is one of the most amazing human beings I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.  She stands up for what is right, and she spends every single day trying to be better than she was yesterday.  This is the same kid that posted PRIDE flags on the lockers every single time that some other kid ripped them down and stomped on them.  Every. Single. Time.  She never gave up.  She just kept making flags. She believes in love.  She believes in equality.  She believes in true freedom.  Freedom to be your truest self. She has marched for planned parenthood. She has marched for science.  She's marching for love in June.  She puts everyone first, all of the time.  It is time for us to put Lacey FIRST. She believe is her family, all of them!  She is the BEST big sister that she could possibly be, to all of her sisters.  

A Few More Details...

Yeah... I saved ALL my "mom points" for this moment RIGHT HERE.  Help me send the coolest, most amazing 16 year old I know to Europe to play her Bass Clarinet across Europe.  I have never asked you to buy wrapping paper, candy bars, or popcorn. I have never taken my kids door to door. This is the BIG one.  If you have $5, it is greatly appreciated.  If you have $10, even better!  If you have more, then open up  that wallet!!!! It's not for me!!! It's for a good cause:)    So #ShutUpAndGiveMyKidYourMoney !!
