Mattresses, tutus and Midori.

Yesterday was quite a day on our little campus.  The famous violinist Midori came and gave a really wonderful class to our music kids.  4 or 5 kids played for her, and she gave really great lessons for a group of violinists, cellists, pianists, faculty, board members.  It’s always so much fun to build associations with these people who’ve had such legendary careers and are willing to share their experience.  Do you remember the famous performance where she broke a string on her violin while playing a concerto and then swapped it out with the concermasters without stopping the piece?  Then it happened again and she swapped again?  This was when she was 14 by the way….

Then last night we had the first Dance performance of the year.  It was really varied and interesting.  I’d never really thought about how the angle of a tutu on the stage could create such a visual impression.  Or that horizontal and vertical placements of mattresses (and prospective sleepers) could truly give an impression of the mental state of an insomniac.  Pretty cool stuff.
