Viola at the Farmers' Market

August 27, 2008 at 7:59 PM

Originally scheduled for July, my daughter's and my first attempt to play at the Belmont Farmers' Market this year was rained out by a freakish thunderstorm. Last week, though, we had beautiful weather for the make-up.

A friend recorded the whole performance and this is the first part that's available. The Bach Courante yet again. :) (For anyone who is wondering how my daughter did, I'm going to give her her own blog entry if she wants one--after she sees the movies).

The high-quality recording equipment makes a big difference. I actually like how this version sounds, especially relative to the digital camera's tinny microphone. You can even hear some dynamic range.

This picture below was taken by the Market's official photographer, a student at the town's Middle school.


The end of summer always comes too fast . . .

So, how did it go? I was thinking about you having written before that you didn't know how your daughter would feel about the performance-in-front-of-others thing.
