Fall has Arrived!

September 23, 2012 at 9:25 PM

Though the equinox was a couple days ago, today was the first day it really felt like fall for me. After I practiced violin at 11am this morning (and even played 'Concerning Hobbits' with the CD track), me and my family all went to the Jonamac Apple Orchard as we do every year. This year, however, because it was a Sunday, there was a band playing. They had two singers, drums, electric bass, electric and acoustic guitars, and a black (I believe it's electric) fiddle! They switched between instruments sometimes. One person started at 1pm with the electric guitar and fiddle, and then after we did the corn maze and saw them again at 2:20pm or so, he had switched to using an acoustic guitar. It was really cool to watch them and the country music made it seem even more like fall. Perhaps as October begins more things will occur, both eventfully and musically, that will shape this new season to perfection!

I believe we are continuing The Lord of the Rings tonight. And I've started my Christmas list already! My first thing I want is a complete Lord of the Rings Symphony score so I can analyze and play it on violin.

As always, thanks for reading! :)
