First Symphony Performance

Remember the audition? It was one of those parenting moments when we had to push Elizabeth in a fairly uncomfortable way (to put it mildly).

Elizabeth has loved her experience in the Green Mountain Youth Symphony. After her first rehearsal, she came running out saying, "Mom, it was CRAZY HARD. I loved it!" She has just thrived on the intensity of the experience.

Saturday was their big performance. Here she is getting ready to go. She was a bit nervous, but excited.

Here they are waiting for the Concert Mistress to begin tuning.

We really enjoyed the performance. Helen took some video, but I must say they are a bit nauseating to watch as she was up in a balcony with a young child who kept banging into her. Lou is on the back left in front of the timpani.

I wish we had a picture from after the performance. Both her violin teachers came as did a friend from school. She was just glowing in the midst of her fan club. It was a great night.

She reports that next semester is going to be "wicked hard." They will be joining their sister group and performing up in Montpelier in the opera house which should be fun.

Amazing! Hard to believe these are teens who probably haven't been playing all that long.

And I had to laugh over the "crazy hard" and "wicked hard" comments. Reminds me so much of my own girls. :)

Brings back memories of my own youth symphony days. She won't believe how much easier the music will seem after a few years of experience. Way to go!
