Tonight I played in a concert -- we played the last movement to the Mendelssohn String Octet and it was FAST. It reminds me what you go through each day, working together, making music and trying as a team. I got to share a stand with a violist that I went to school with 10 years ago and she was great!! (she made my mistakes vanish) -- The bottom line is I am thankful for all your hard work in music!
