Here I am
Today was the last day of Harp Fire. The adults met each afternoon and the kids had all day classes. We had a great instructor, wonderful classmates, a good time and made beautiful music.
Life is good.

Our faculty gave an opening recital that was great!
Last week's concerts were a test of endurance and resilience for all of us. The temperatures were higher than normal and the intonation in the first concerts was difficult.
But the concert last night with Ft. Worth Symphony was terrific. Di Wu (a Cliburn winner) was amazing and the orchestral pieces were two of my favorites. FWSO definitely knows how to make the outdoor concerts the best around. From gigantic fans cooling us to ice water in small strategically placed coolers onstage to the excellent musicians who play beautifully no matter what the temperature. I feel so lucky to be called to play with them.
Have a wonderful week - I will try to update Harp Fire as the week goes on.....
