Twinkle

DSC_0065
Here's a few more pics from my daughters' Suzuki concert with the "big orchestra".

There are usually only about 5 or 6 students in their violin class, so they were thrilled to get the chance to play with such a big group when kids from other area schools visited to rehearse together.

Honestly, they were both beginning to get a little bored with the violin, but after playing with the local professional orchestra last weekend, they are raring to go again.

We've been listening to the girls play Twinkle Variations for two years now.

I have to say, last weekend it all paid off.

Here's a (shaky (sorry, mom here may have been a little blubbery)) video of the performance, if you're interested:

My youngest daughters were invited to play with area Suzuki violinists in a concert with our local (grown-up) orchestra. Here, they are waiting to rehearse outside of the concert hall. (Love that it didn't take long for some of the students to decide to use their bows as swords). :)
