orchesra touring

We had an orchestra tour today! Our orchestra toured three different schools in 3 different towns. I think it was a blast. I'm definitely looking forward to next year's tour already. =)

We rode on a huge fancy bus to the different schools, and played the same songs at each one. The 'little elementary children' loved it. It was really cute watching them clap and smile. They got involved in the concert a little {my orchestra conductor is very good about that} and enjoyed every minute, I think.

I play the violin in the orchestra, and so do some of my other friends. My cousin {who I'm too shy to talk to} Erika plays the cello. Then there are a few other random acquaintences, too. Orchestra is definitely something I enjoy and will keep doing as long as I can.

If you play a stringed instrument, I'd highly recommend participating in a youth orchestra/symphony. It's definitely worth the time and effort! The pros definitely are more than the cons for me.

Have an excellent day.

Oh, Lulu, how FUN to play in an orchestra! =) I would LOVE to play violin someday. For now, I'm content enough with the piano. But I do hope to learn violin! :)
