It was great to have them even though they only had less than 10 days to work on new ensemble pieces and prepare to perform their solo pieces. But they learned that when given an opportunity to perform they have to take the challenge and prepare themselves. You should never take performance opportunities for granted! That was something OPUSFEST students reminded me during the festival.
The audience at Atria was very welcoming. I hope to go back there again. They also suggested we could do open rehearsals there. Many many thanks to the staff members, too!
I hope she will continue enjoying book 2!
Student recitals at Long Ridge Music Center is this Sunday, June 23. The repertoire from my studio includes Accolay's violin concerto in a minor, Böhm's Perpetual Motion, Schumann's the Two Grenadiers , and many more. Keep working hard, everyone, for another successful performance!
