The Missouri Symphony's opening concert for their Hot Summer Nights Festival at Stephen's Lake Park Amphitheater was a huge success! We had a great turn out and, once the sun came out, some wonderful weather! This free concert was basically a preview of some of the future concert programs to try to entice more locals to come to the Missouri Theatre. I think there will be a lot of new concert goers this summer!
My performance of the Tango was somewhat near the beginning of the concert which I was gateful for because there wasn't anywhere to warm up and it started to get pretty chilly later on. I think the audience really enjoyed the Tango - some people even came up to me afterwards and said they wished they could have dance! I told them they should have! ^_^
After the Tango was over there wasn't really any place for me to go and I didn't want to sit on the grass in my dress, so I sat in the back of the violin section and played the rest of the concert! It was a lot of fun to play Looney Toons and Star Wars :) My stand partner, Mingu, and I had a blast!
The main rehearsal for the Shostakovich concerto is today so I'd better get going and practice. Keep an eye out for my YouTube video of last night's performance! :)
