So, school is over. I'm not certain of my grades. I could have failed all of my classes, but I do know that I ended my AP Statistics class with an 83. Unfortunate, I know, but my partner for my final project didn't come through with the work he was supposed to do, and let's just say that it is easier to blame others than ourselves.

I have my ASYO audition in September, so I have plenty of time before that happens. I won't have a lesson this week because my teacher will be teaching (as violin coach) at the Kennewsaw State University Summer Orchestra camp. I'm not going to that camp, or the UGA one either, but that is because my parents can't afford them after spending $1,100 on Franklin Pond. Oh well. I'll have a heck of a time in Jekyll Island.

I'll probably go to the UGA Fall Orchestra festival, though, since it is free, and a lot of fun. And I'll definitely play in the masterclass this time.

Bruch is coming along nicely, I suppose, or at least the first page is. I need to work on the second page. Not the lyrical stuff, but rather the second line from the bottom (on the second page) in the Peters edition. Then, there is the last page (cadenza-y stuff) that I should work on.

Oh, I have some exciting news. A friend of mine is performing Hindemith's "Trauermusik" at the KSU camp. I'm going to go see him play next Saturday.

What is the KSU camp? Is that associated with Kansas State University?

No, KSU is Kennesaw State University. It is located in Kennesaw, Georgia, believe it or not, and is a university recognized by the State of Georgia, to give you a brief description of how the university's name was derived.

Ah, ok. KSU means Kansas to me. :)
