It’s not too late to join us for etude class! Each week we look at a different section of the etudes and students play for one another and receive individual feedback. This week we are looking at the first 20 measures of Campagnoli and the first 12 of the Kreutzer. Students can join weekly or attend for the rest of the summer! Message or email for information on prorated tuition as the summer goes on.
Know a violist in Texas who would like help with the 2020-2021 Region/All State etudes? Students can sign up and join my HS studio group class on Saturday afternoons. Send me an email for more info! #viola #texasallstate #violists #violas #orchestra Many thanks to @gabblehound for lovely design!
Just wrapped up our last studio class of the semester. These incredible humans have worked so hard all year long, have shown tremendous resilience, work ethic, and prepared very well for their end of semester juries, degree recitals, and proficiency exams. I couldn’t ask for a better studio 💜🎻🦦#shsuschoolofmusic #viola #violists #zoomstudioclass
Schumann opus 34, “Family Portrait” with @sergiopallottelli and Kyung-A Yoo. Such a beautiful movement with beautiful words about grandparents sitting in a garden being reminded of their life long love. A beautiful translation is available here: https://www.oxfordlieder.co.uk/song/525
Schumann op 78 with @sergiopallottelli and Kyung-A Yoo. A fitting way to end a recital given our current global situation. We chose this work as the last piece months ago because we wanted to end the concert with a lullaby. Little did we know that our last notes would be the lullaby for public concerts in Houston (and all over the place) for a while. As we played the last page, I didn’t want to work to be over. I wanted to hang on for as long as possible and enjoy the music and music making just a little longer. Looking forward to days when concerts happen again, but until then I’ll see y’all here for some socially distanced musical endeavors.
All smiles as we get ready for the concert tonight. It’s still happening! Maybe the last for a while! Salem Lutheran Church in Houston at 7:30. Come on by if you’re feeling well!
Willie Nelson said it best: “the life I love is making music with my friends.” Our concert is coming up!
