And speaking of my violin, I have the Senior Concerto auditions on January 6th! Last Wednesday, I was actually able to play through “Little Snow-White”, my violin concerto I wrote and probably discussed in April or July 2014, with my piano teacher, so it was cool to hear it played by acoustic instruments, rather than MIDI. I’m getting very excited for playing these pieces; I’ll be spending a lot of time over break practicing very hard for those (I’m also playing the Rimsky-Korsakov Piano Concerto). It’s fun to look back at my old sketches for the piece I wrote back in April and see how much of the piece has changed, and also how much better I’m sounding now than before. It would be really cool to play this for the concert, but for now I just have to keep practicing and can worry about the actual audition after the New Year.
Just a quick update entry here, I guess. I’m very excited for Christmas this year I think, and it’s even fun to listen to some of my old violin videos with the Christmas “specials” as well. Hopefully I’ll have more time to write about any cool musical things that happen until the New Year. Thanks for reading
