L14 had a very full but satisfying week at the Kiwanis Music Festival. This year she played Malaguena by Sarasate as the Grade 9 general piece and Romance in F major by Beethoven, Melodie by Tchaikovsky and Praeludium and Allegro by Kreisler for the Grade 9/10 Concert Group. It was very encouraging for her (and for Andrew and I) to hear the adjudicator’s comments which were quite different to last year’s reflecting the progress she has made over the past year.
On Friday she played a Vivaldi concerto for four violins with the senior performance group and received very encouraging comments and grade from the adjudicator. When he saw her later in the day for sight-reading and then at the evening competition, he mentioned again how much he enjoyed their performance.
A12 begins her week of competition tomorrow evening.
