I have a very exciting update. This evening I received an email saying that I was excepted to the Honor Orchestra of America. I am so excited. Except it happens the week before ALLSTATE so I am going to be so busy. But it is definitely worth it.

Wow. Tonight made every hard hour of practicing totally worth it. I was so nervous when I went up there; I generally hate playing solos. But I was up there in the moment. My intonation was nearly perfect and my improvisation was flawless. It was truly exhilarating.
After the performance I got praise from nearly everyone. Actually there was only one person that I came across that didn't say a word. And frankly I never expect anything encouraging to come out of his mouth. Anyway, people were asking me if I had a recording of the piece they could buy. People I didn't know were introducing themselves to me.
Better than anything though, was the compliment I got from a person I very much look up to. He was all interested in my electric violin. But the best part was when he said, "I was skeptical about the piece at first but once I heard it....Virginia you are such a good violin player." To get a compliment like that from someone you admire so much is absolutely incredible. It was the best feeling in the world.
If I could go back and do it again I would in a heartbeat. There were photographers from our school paper right in front of me, clicking their camera like crazy. I can not wait for the real Edge performance.
