October 9, 2012 at 11:42 PMI popped open my violin case today during orchestra when I discovered my A string had snapped off the bridge and was hanging on the scroll! I had to use my teacher's violin, both for the orchestra class and for my private lesson half an hour later, and I don't think we hit it off very well at all. Luckily, we were able to go to PM Music at 5:30pm to get a new A string. The worker there checked all my other strings, but they seemed to be staying on pretty well. It's odd; whenever a string is broken, it's ALWAYS my A string, and I just recently replaced my strings in the summer. Oh, well. Not a huge deal. But just one I thought I'd mention. :)
And our first orchestra concert of the year is next week! Expect a post then! :)
