My Day Off

October 16, 2006 at 9:36 PM

Today during orchestra I had to practice for an upcoming quartet gig. We recieved a binder of sight readable music before class from my orchestra teacher. For contests, we are working on Shosty's No. 8 (love it!). Anyway, practicing with the quartet went well and at the end of class, one of our peers came and got us. Several times that day I was approached by other orchestreers with wide eyes
"Sydney, I just wanted to say, you are so good."
"Um, haha, thanks? What?"
"Well, some of the other firsts had to play your solos today..." Apparently it didn't go so well. I had never seen such gratitude in all my days as concertmaster. Well, I suppose that was one way of earning respect as a leader. I wonder what will happen tomorrow...

Aw, that's wonderful! I'm not surprised, though...you are "so, so, good"!

Yay, Sydney! I'm glad you're getting the credit you deserve.
