The ad for the concert in last Sunday's Star and the information on Butler's website was misleading. In all of the advertisements and pictures, the focus was on Marsalis and not on the Bands of America kids. Even the tickets had the Lincoln Center's name on it. Much to my disappointment, too much of the concert was performed by the kids. They were great, but I didn't come to hear an hour's worth of music played by high school students. Most state honor band concerts are free, and the tickets should have been much lower if the students were going to take up so much performance time. The Bands of America organization fooled a lot of people last night!!!
