I’m just home from a UCSC orchestra concert. It was a very enjoyable performance, and included a very good violin soloist, Vera Zelichenok, playing the Bruch Violin Concerto. Also on the program was Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni and Symphony No. 1 by Mendelssohn.
Problems? Well, yes, there were some intonation struggles. But I’m not going to be singling any of the sections out on this little blog. Not for now, anyway. (Although I am certain the section in question doesn’t read this.)
But really, it was a very enjoyable evening.
Oh … and great job to my students, Sara Hancock and Kayte Haegele! Also to Tabitha Tetreault whom I miss since we have no WWQ this year. :-(
