My twelve year old is musically inclined, she plays the violin, the alto sax and tenor sax, guitar and piano.
On occasion special invitations to join the band are sent out, this is one such occasion

I'd let her do it, because it could lead to a music scholarship, internships, and professional work if she wants it. So congratulations - this is a FAR cry from when my university did not allow women into the band and my middle and high school tryied to keep girls out as well.

Well, my 10 year class reunion is coming up next month so it made me wonder how long has everyone been out of high school? Would you go back if you could?
