Summer Orchestra is basically working in an orchestra... in the summer! We have fourteen days to prepare three or four pieces (she hasn't given them to us yet) for the concert July 10th (four days a week, excluding July 4). Rehearsals are from 11:30am-12:50pm. To get there, I ride my bike, so I adjusted the strap on my violin case so I can wear it 'round my back, sort of like a backpack. I feel like some sort of street musician when I do this! :)
Anyways, yesterday and today we were just sight-reading random music, and it was pretty fun! We jumped all over the place, some Baroque, some modern... It was a fun couple of days. Tomorrow she is going to give us our official pieces we're playing for the concert, so I'm excited!
