I'm so happy to have my exam over with. I was starting to get a little worried about it as the deadline was approaching really fast, and I still had to get my concerto memorised. I was thrilled when I was able to play it by memory two days prior to the exam! My actual exam went really well overall and I had lots of fun once I got past my concerto.

I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of my family this spring when they fly and drive out to come and hear the youth symphony play! We had a rehearsal yesterday and everything went really well! I think my favorite piece that we are doing is the Overture to the Gypsy Baron by Strauss, it has lots of tricky stuff in it and lots of mood and tempo changes.
