Spring semester

January 14, 2006 11:18

So I'm crazy excited about spring semester. Here's what I'm taking:

1. Violin lessons (1.5 hours per week)
2. Orchestra rep lessons (.5 hours per week)
3. Viola lessons (.5 hours per week)
4. Instrumental conducting
5. History of Western Music (prehistory-Baroque)
6. Symphonic Literature
7. Symphony Orchestra
8. Quartet

And the awesomest thing is that I don't have class until noon on any given day of the week.

Quartet is also going to be amazing, I hope. We're all really dedicated, serious performers, so it has lots of potential. We want to play the Borodin No. 2 to start with (probably the most beautiful quartet I've ever heard.

I'm also crazy excited about orchestra because the first concert is the Rimsky-Korsakov "Scheherazade" and the Ravel "Scheherazade" (I didn't even know Ravel wrote one!)

Hah, seems like it's going to be a "Mighty 5" semester!
