It was a beautiful concert to listen to this afternoon. All performers played well.Master 13 played Concerto in A minor, 1st mvt by Vivaldi and Master 8 played Gavotte by Lully . Well done boys it was a joy to listen to you and the rest of the students playing! Before the concert, Master 13 listened to his piece "a trillion times" and I'm quite sure his ability at the concert was a direct result of all that listening. Our teacher always has stressed this part of the method and I will be reinforcing it in the future even more so!
The next part is a postscript and a proud mummy moment. Our violin teacher just called to congratulate us on how well the boys played in the concert and especially Toby. Apparently people came up to her and said that his playing was the highlight of the concert for them. Still others talked to her about that tall boy,all arms and legs who made the concert so memorable.
So Jenny phoned today to congratulate and to encourage us once again to go to winter school. “When I think of where we’ve come in a few short years…” she says and I too marvel and pause to give thanks to our great God who knew on this grey-day-Monday that this was the very day we needed to hear this praise.
