Phoebe practiced her Vivaldi concerto all summer. When she arrived at the recording for a new pilot sponsored by Julliard, all the little ones were demoted to the EASY version.
She was really dissappointed, but I tried to help her look at the bright side. I'm not sure if she totally understood what was happening, but hopefully when she gets a chance to record again, she will remember sitting in her first orchestra, with a conductor, and playing a song multiple times for the recording.
The concerto featured a flute solo, and Miss Emma from somewhere that is NOT New York, was flown in to record with the orchestra. Talk about a prodigy, we were definitely in the presence of one:
Phoebe is not a prodigy, but she works hard and practices a lot. I am really proud of the progress she has made in 2 years. History tells me that she will make a big leap in the first half of the year, so I am looking forward to her December concert. Lolly is getting ready for her admissions test for Phoebe's school in a few weeks. If she gets in, I will be excited, but wait....that's a LOT more practicing added to my overflowing plate.
