So I know it has truly been forever since I wrote in here. So much has happened over the past year!!
Right now I'm in Durango, Colorado for the Music in the Mountains Festival. I'm playing in the orchestra, teaching 5 students, playing a recital at a private home, and tomorrow night I will be performing the Brandenburg concerto no. 5! Whew!
I'm really excited for the concert tomorrow night. Members of the festival orchestra will be performing Bach's Brandenburg concertos 2, 3, 4 and 5. I get to play no. 5 with Jeanie Larson Garver, principal flute of the Dallas Symphony, who has literally known me since I was born! Skip James will be performing on harpsichord and he's absolutely amazing.
Bach's music is so incredible. You could be having a totally crappy, terrible day, but as soon as you play a few measures of Bach everything seems right with the world again. How does that happen? His music is truly a gift from God
