Mackenzie has a performance tonight at the Mahaffey theater in Saint Petersburg  with the All-County orchestra. When she went to leave school she went to the music room to get her violin and the teacher had left early and it was locked. Thank goodness she has a couple spares at home that she really likes.

Wow, that was a good thing. So glad she has one she likes to use instead. Enjoy the performance!

Hi @steveduf.  Poor kid.  The school principal and janitor likely had master keys, but timely access would have been difficult if she had to transport by bus.

Thanks all... she needed to pay attention to business,I know she’s only 14 but...

she was lucky she had her “home” violin to play.

i am very proud of her, our county has over 30,000 high school students in 22 different high schools.  As a ninth grader she squeaked in as 1 of 26 violinists for all county orchestra.  8F02B78C-4FE2-43CA-987C-9B03C38D08D2.jpegImage Enlarger70F5870E-D1DB-4EAB-BE0D-373828869886.jpegImage Enlarger419961A0-2EDD-427F-B4DD-320E3715DA26.jpegImage Enlarger06264BB6-861D-4744-BB95-9C080A533801.jpegImage Enlarger

Go Mack! (although that expression might be more appropriate next time she steps up to the plate 🙂 )
