So, after how many hours of rehersal and sectionals on Saturday, I came back home from Atlanta and sat in front of the computer for the remainder of the day. I didn't practice at all, which I regretted Sunday after having to practice scales and other basics to get back into the swing of things.
I received a phone call from my teacher. He told me of a few things I might be interested in. He is having a recital tomorrow night at a university that he teaches at, and he also wanted to let me know that the Miami String Quartet is playing at the same university on Saturday night, and that the quartet was holding masterclasses on Sunday. So, if my teacher can get me a free or reduced price ticket for saturday night, I'll go. But if he can't, I'll spend the $30 on a ticket and go anyways. Quartet music is a lot of fun to play and even more fun to listen to.
Speaking of quartet music, I received my CD from the Franklin Pond Chamber Music Concert. The bartok piece sounded better than I expected. I am happy with my quartet's playing. The Schubert has its moments... both good and bad, haha.
