Well some fun things that are coming up, I'm actually semi looking forward to my upcoming audition. I haven't done one in awhile and I'm one of those addicts who likes to perform though I'm sure when I actually arrive at the audition my nerves might have some say as to my feelings then. My school's talent show is finally actually happening! I have rehearsals tomorrow and then the actual show is next week, all week. I'm now playing piano for a song called "Send in the Clowns" from a musical by Sondheim called "A Little Night Music" that my friend is singing. I haven't accompanied a vocalist in public before so this will be a new endeavor and I don't have very long to learn the music, though it seems pretty playable so far! And then of course, the Vitali Ciaccona is going to be my solo piece. Other fun stuff...well the whole violin decision process is now getting to be fun. My local violin teacher has weighed in her opinion of the violin that I am seriously considering and she really likes it and thinks it's a good bargain for the price so now I just need one more approval from my other teacher and then hopefully I will be able to bring home a new violin to show you all!
Well my bus leaves here soon so I should probably consider signing off so I don't miss it.
Oh, before I do say goodbye for the day. Everyone should really check out the Vaughn-Williams oboe concerto (such an amazing work!!! I think I've raved about it here before..) and the Barber cello sonata. I've included a mvt. of the Barber above for all to enjoy.
