firstchair trumpet player and NBHS junior stole Unicorn fans hearts and almost the show this past week at Alamo Stadium when he played the schools alma solo If I have to do it Ill have to do it again but hopefully he said leaving the almost unthinkable unsaid Most kids knees knock at the idea of per forming in front of a large group of people And it doesnt matter that they usually are See Kudos 4A playing with more than 200 band members But Leifeste performed the schools alma mater in front of nearly people and he had to do it by himself The band buses were running late because of the traffic for the NebraskaTexas game I Leifeste said He was riding the first bus with director Beth Bronk who told him he might have to play the alma mater sans accompaniment Twenty minutes later we got there and there were about 15of us walking up to the places where we usually he recalled When the announcer said the Unicorn band would play the alma mater New Braunfels fans were wondering who would play it because the whole band was not there The percussion instructor Melissa Townsend told me to go ahead and play so I closed my eyes and started to Leifeste said I was hoping I wouldnt crack a note or get a wrong I kept trying to figure out how many people would be there but I knew if I had to do it I had to do And he did Of course Bronk never had any doubts I knew he would do it and do it very she Bronk has taught Leifeste since he first picked up his trumpet in the sixth grade He has played in the top band since he was a freshman Leifeste also had to perform flawlessly Mon day when he tried out at the area band competi tion He secured a seat on the area band and will audition for the state band in January If he handles that audition with the belief maturity and poise he had Saturday
