Dates. Violin Dates.

June 19, 2012 at 3:37 PM

There are all sorts of dates associated with the violin. Dates for concerts, recitals, parts due when making instruments, days due for a project. Dates for the violin for concerts or really, anything, are scheduled around the clock - throughout all four seasons.

Do you get nervous or excited when something comes up, such as a concert, for example? For me, I'm really excited leading up to the concert, but I get nervous at the actual event, and I'm sure that's similar or the same for mostly everybody. For example, the Pops Concert last month was a lot of fun to prepare for, and I practiced a lot. When the actual concert date arrived, I was nervous, even though I did just fine.

A date for me is coming up, and that's when my composition is due. I've been working hard on my symphony whenever I can, and I hope to finish it by the end of August or beginning of September so I have time to edit it for November. I'm sure it's the same if you were making your own instruments - different segments of the project might be due at different times, I don't really know.

The point is, we will find dates all the time, which means we must keep playing our instruments (like we've been doing) and keep working on our projects to get the jobs done and make fantastic music together - no matter what.
