the age of aquarius

Today on the way home from work, this song came on the radio and I was transported back to 6th grade when my older brother was in 9th grade.  Somehow, even though we were band geeks (or were destined to become band geeks), somehow, he was in a choir conducted by Mr. Flinders that got to perform at the Valley Music Hall in Bountiful.

They performed The Age of Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In, and the boys in the choir wore white pants and vests and perhaps even white belts and shoes(?) with solid color shirts. 

It was so cool.  I seem to remember them singing and swaying and I'm sure it was just like something from The Brady Bunch or maybe even The Partridge Family.

I don't remember ever feeling more proud of my brother.
