July 22, 2012 at 3:18 PMIt's been a while since I've done anything violin, and I hope to get back in the groove of that this afternoon (or morning!) or tomorrow during my lesson. That's because I've been gone for a while, on vacation and at a funeral (I'd rather not talk about it here). And now I've started writing a book (for fun, although I've become WAY too obsessed with it). The only violin thing I've really been doing is writing my symphony, which has violins and a piano in it. That's pretty neat. (Actually, I restarted my old symphony, because I started to disagree with it. So now, I have a completely revived symphony, less instruments, new key, and I've been working on it as well. I have about a month to finish it!) And, I've had to read a book for Honors English this year. Won't get into details about that, since this is VIOLINist.com.
So. Ahem. Sorry about that rant. Back to the topic at hand. This morning, I received, in the mail, a CD of my Pops Concert! It has all nine songs on it. Two of them (Turkey in the Straw and Night on Bald Mountain) were songs I did not play, but the remaining seven I was a part of. I haven't totally listened to all of them yet (probably I'll do that when I go to bed) but I'm really excited about them and I can't wait to relive May's Pops Concert I was talking about since I started this blog.
So, yeah. That's about it. I'll try my best to upload a violin video on YouTube and continue uploading this blog whenever possible, but I have lots of other stuff I'm working on, too. Maybe I'll record my symphony's MIDI file when it's done this August for YouTube. Thanks for reading, and I hope I pull my violin out sometime soon to practice and work on a project with it.
Bye! See you later!
