Music Music Music

A couple of weeks ago my dear grand-daughters  had the opportunity to participate in a spectacular performance presented by their school orchestra. One plays the violin and the other the viola. My pictures are not that good as I still have not caught the knack of using my new camera, but I try and I am learning more all of the time!  This is Kt. She is a long ways off and my camera just could not do her justice! June 21, 2007 056 This Mimi just to the left of the conductor’s left shoulder and KT just to the right of his right shoulder. This photo was taken at a zoom 10x.  I am sure that I moved the camera. kt playing her viola. cropped jpgKt

Now I call that dedication!!! Both of these girls have voices that would get them into any choir, but they chose the instrument! I love to hear them play and sing, but they won’t do either very often without the group behind them. Darn them anyway. See more about them at Sue’s Blog.
