We are currently split between San Francisco, Rome and somewhere on the East coast. I can never keep track of Becca! Usually during the summer we do our seperate festivals and concerts but this year we’ve got a summer concert coming up and I’m busy preparing. Luckily we’ve already perfomed half our program several times (Mozart Divertimento) so I only have one other trio to learn (Beethoven Op9 No2). I searched for videos on Youtube but found nothing so I did it the old-fashioned way and bought a recording! Since I was little, I’ve been listening to recordings of whatever I’m learning. I am very much an auditory learner and find that even if the music is just on in the background, the next time I pick up my violin, the notes feel very familiar. Enough about that…
Our concert will be in Estes Park, CO. We all have special memories of Estes and the YMCA of the Rockies. We spent a good portion of our summers there, sometimes visiting relatives and sometimes participating in the YMCA day camps- horseback riding, hiking, whitewater rafting, etc. Such fun times! We will return late next month to give a concert, rehearse for our next season (we must fit in rehearsal time when we can!) and enjoy the mountains.
If you’re looking for a great place for a family vacation, come join us in Estes Park! Please check our calendar page for more information.
