Final Emory Concerts!

The season is truly coming to an end! Last week marked my last Emory concert this school year! This has been a wonderful and fun experience.

A weekend or two ago, a large part of my orchestra went up to Nashville for the weekend. We toured various museums, listened to some fantastic music, made our own custom goo goos (those did not last very long… :-)), performed at Belmont University, and most importantly – we ate every 3 hours.

Check out the recordings at these links:

Pulcinella – Stravinsky

Shenandoah

Mad Hatter Musings – Mosier

Another Cabaret!

…and yet another fun cabaret has gone by! This time, I performed two pieces I absolutely adore – America (West Side Story), and Je Veux (by Zaz).  In America, I was honored to have been able to accompany Ms. Ashlyn, a phenomenal dancer. As a surprise, I prepared and dedicated Je Veux to Mme Maryse, my wonderful friend and French teacher.

I was honored that my family and friends came to see my performances! Check out the recordings below.

I cannot wait till the next cabaret! Please comment and let me know what you think.

My New Violin – Sweet Valentine!

I got my first full-size violin just a couple of weeks ago! Woo-hoo! And boy, do I love her – which is very appropriate since I got her on Valentine’s Day. In honor of this, I have named her my Sweet Valentine. Who knows – maybe she will be the violin I take with me through the rest of my life. Check out the pictures – isn’t she just beautiful? And she sounds so wonderful… like melted caramel.

Cabaret 2019!

Woohoo! Once again, I got the opportunity to be a part of my acting studio’s Cabaret! I had so much fun playing some fiddle music – I performed Cotton-Eyed Joe! This was a special treat for me, as I mostly play classical music! Special thanks to my wonderful violin teacher Mr. Crane, who arranged the violin music and created the soundtrack.

I also sang I Could Have Danced All Night. This is such a special song and I got to be like Audrey Hepburn aka Eliza Doolittle for a few minutes…😊 I also had the honor of working on this piece with Ms. Ashlyn, a wonderful dancer! Mr. Don joined us for the second performance and made it very funny.😊 Here are the recordings:
