February 28, 2008 at 7:42 AMI got Hilda back from the "viola hotel" (luthier) yesterday. I dropped her off for a new bridge and soundpost and let her stay there while I was in China. After spending so much time with the Old Man over the past two weeks, playing Hilda again was like how it was two years ago - aches and pains from a larger instrument. Luckily, it only took a day to get used to her again.
The flu has hit my teacher, so no lessons tonight. It also hit one of the violinists in my ensemble, so no practice this Thursday either. Both are going to be rescheduled later this week.
