It's over! I did the audition. I could have played better, but it went alright overall. I really still dislike that Schumann symphony. I didn't play it quite at 144 at the audition but I did play it fairly fast. After getting through the first section I was asked to stop told that the notes were great the rests were not so great. So I tried it again, and it went better in terms of the rests. It's nice to have that out of the way though now!

Tomorrow morning I'm doing a short fiddle set (30 minutes) at the International children's Festival that's in town right now and another one on Saturday. On top of that I have four dance concerts, so it's going to be a busy next few days.

It's nice to be back to a more regular practice routine now. I'm excited about getting back to work on my usual repertoire and the usual grind! I want to get that cadenza finished and some more work done on that vocal work I started before it got so busy.

I'm starting a German course this fall, which I am excited about. It will be a good thing for me I think, and a good language to learn. It will help a lot if I'm ever in Europe and it will be fun to try it out with some of my German speaking relatives and friends.

Anyways! back to all the stuff.
