I just had so much fun playing with Micha Haran and ABS-CBN Philharmonic and it got better and better. The concert was the best and I have to say, I had the most incredible time then! It was too incredible and exciting to even feel nervous or worry about anything.
I am very very grateful for the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Gerard Salonga for being really prepared and perfect with balance (always a fear for soloists) and following us. I never had to sacrifice anything to be audible!
Playing with Micha was also a great experience for me. He is the former principal of the Israel Philharmonic and an incredible musician!!
Many many thanks to those who supported me, especially the great team of my mentors, Peter Winograd and Wolfram Koessel! Thanks to my colleagues who sat during rehearsals to check balances etc, and being supportive. Their performances were very inspiring! I also have to mention that the artist-faculty shared lots of quality times and we were constantly laughing. I'm grateful that I got to work with such incredible and talented musicians, or rather, human beings. And last but not least I hope the delegates (students) of OPUSFEST 2013 were inspired by our performances and pieces. It was great to see them in the front rows at the concert. Seeing their faces made me want to play well for them so they were part of my inspiration! :-)
