AHhhh. So now I take that moment. They are there all the time, I just care enough about them to hold on to them for a few more moments until calm, well, happens.
I spent some time at the luthiers and now my viola is back..and playable!!! All that really needed to be done (lots COULD be done, but as far as the main complaint goes) was shave down the bridge and fit it better. At all, actually. I played it today and....yea. He must have taken off an inch. It is great! Now I can focus on other things!
I had a rehearsal yesterday on Beethoven Symphony no. 7. Because I had been a nervous fender bender the last week or so, I must have prepared well. No real issues that were problems. If you had to pick one of these violinists that is not like the other ones...(Highlights magazine) it wouldn't have been me. Or anyone, I think. I was generally surprised and delighted. The concert is next week.
We're also looking for a house to rent in this area for the end of next month. And school for everyone else starts tomorrow. My teacher is going to teach me without having to go through the school, since of course that got all messed up. In about five ways. I'm so very excited and greatful that she is willing to do that.
The COrelli Alliance stringes were bum. Didn't fit right somehow. And not well-suited...and I tore up the C string winding at the top because it got stuck THREE times while trying to wind or unwind it.
So I just sighed (heavily) and got a set of obligatos for the viola at the shop.
What bank account, did you see any bank account??
I'm really revved to play my viola through the week, breaking the new strings in and being so overjoyed by the playability of my instrument.
I think my leg fell asleep. Better go put it to bed.
