The biggest team sport of all!
Andrew participates in what his cello teacher calls the biggest team sport of all...orchestra, that is...100 plus team members all playing together to achieve what none of them could do on their own. Last Friday was his final concert of the UNCCYO season and a memorable concert it was with both classical and popular selections. Our favorites were Mars from The Planets by Gustav Holst and the music from Jurassic Park.
His next performance will be the Bach Cello Suite, Number 2, which he'll play as one of the prelude selections at Thomas's homeschool graduation ceremony. Nice to have our dear friend, Jenn, also a cellist, here from China right now. She's helping Andrew polish his piece and it's bringing back memories of the early days of our friendship when she helped a much younger and shorter Andrew with his beginning cello pieces.
