Dru, I think you mentioned something to me before about you playing the viola. I wish I'd remembered that, because I would have invited you to the solo concert my daughter gave last Saturday night at St. Cyprian's. You probably would have enjoyed it!
If you haven't already seen my Sentimental Sunday post from last week, you can check it out here. This was just one piece that she played and dedicated to me. Enjoy!


Mavis said...

Wow, I learned to play the viola in 6th grade, too.

Do you play anymore?

Professor Dru said...

Mavis, how many years did you play?

Professor Dru said...

Renate, will your daughter have a Christmas concert? If so, email me the date and time.

Renate Yarborough Sanders said...

Hey again. Oh my, no! One big concert like that is enough for awhile!...LOL. I just got back from Richmond attending an ensemble performance (Brahms Trio with french horn and piano) and will be headed back up on Wednesday, when she will perform the Kabalevsky Concerto with the orchestra. I will definitely keep you in mind if she gives anymore performances in this area. :)

I only played for a year. My dad was a band director when the schools were still segregated. So band was bigger on his radar than orchestra. As soon as I hit 7th grade, he had me in band playing the saxophone. The viola was sold to neighbor / friend. I loved band too but at the time I really wanted to stay in orchestra.
