Winter? In October?

October 14, 2009 at 8:39 PM

 This morning, there was frost on my car. We are halfway through October – I was a little surprised and more than a little disheartened! I should start buckling down for the six months of winter Cleveland is destined to have. Oh well…

 

It has been a chaotic last month. Since my season started a mere four weeks ago, I have played nine times (ten including this week), and much of the rep has been different. This week, I am back in Ohio playing Mendelssohn – a familiar piece in a familiar place. Finally, I have a moment to breathe. Oh wait, I have to learn two all-Ravel programs for the end of this month – yikes! I was in Boise last month as guest concertmaster for the Boise Philharmonic and had a lovely time meeting cellist Zuill Bailey. Next month, I travel to warmer weather (Houston and St. Louis) for Mendelssohn and Beethoven, and then make my New York City recital debut in December.

I hope everyone enjoys the new site, courtesy of DE Web Design. I will have the concert page updated soon, as there are several additions. Any ideas for a fun photo shoot?

Will write more next time – going to warm up a glass of cider and learn the Mendelssohn concerto (in e minor, right?) for this weekend.

Best,
A
