Jonathan Joins the Buckhannon Chamber Orchestra

This year The Buckhannon Chamber Orchestra invited me to play with them. This is the most advanced group I have played with since Esther started teaching me in 2004. 

{Buchannon Orchestra '06} The three 2nd violinists

I really liked the songs that they picked.  In the middle of the concert one of my strings got loose so I couldn’t play it, but at the end of the song I gave it to my fellow 2nd violinist and he fixed it in time to play the next song. I learned a whole lot about playing with others and blending for a fantastic sound. I hope that I can play with them again next year.

    Congratulations Jonathan! I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to be there to hear you perform. I know you worked really diligently to learn the orchestra pieces on short notice and it’s so neat to see you in the pictures performing right along with the rest of the orchestra. Way to go!
