I am so proud of Aidan. Tonight he auditioned for junior orchestra with his cello. He was nervous but did spectacularly well. It bodes well when the conductor makes it a point to tell you that "he's good." He is good and very talented by his teacher's admission. I'm so thrilled that not only is he keeping up with his instrument, but taking it further with orchestra. It'll mean a busier year next fall but we'll make it work and it'll be so worth it.
Aidan's audition took place after his cello class. We had time to kill so I took him for the walk through the river valley that I like to take each week during his class.
I'm one lucky mom to get to enjoy all the beautiful live music I get to hear in my home! And my kids dedication helps keep me trying to maintain my own violin practice, sometimes successfully and sometimes otherwise. Summer is still committed to her violin practice and is doing beautifully! Her favorite pieces to work on are the orchestral songs of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
Today Aidan received his acceptance letter to junior orchestra!
