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.
