First Rehearsal in 2012

January 3, 2012

I went in for our first rehearsal of the year tonight with the Livermore-Amador Symphony and I’m already faced with some challenging music!

Here’s the list of music we will be performing on Feb.11 in the Bankhead Theater in Livermore, CA:

– Saint-Saens’s Danse Macabre

– Smetana’s Moldau

– Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.2

– Debussy’s Rhapsodie 

– Maxwell Davies’ An Orkney Wedding With Surprise

For this concert, I’m sitting right behind the concertmistress and I think the pressure’s definitely on…AND…I’m making all my students attend this concert…so what will I be doing for the next month? PRACTICE, LISTEN TO THE MUSIC, PRACTICE, LISTEN TO THE MUSIC, AND PRACTICE SOME MORE:)

An update on Austin’s progress – He’s been practicing Perpetual Motion with 4th finger on A&E strings as well as D&A strings, and I will post a video of him playing these soon:) He struggled with the 4th finger for a few days, but his left elbow is now more closer to his tummy, which is making the 4th finger reach much easier now than before:) Video will come SOON…

Then it’s time to learn the D Major pieces in Suzuki!!YAY!!
