She auditioned back here. in early January.
For the auditions busses arrived from all over the state.
She got in!
And this weekend was the festival.
She was bussed from her school on Friday afternoon to another town for a rehearsal until 8:30 pm.
We missed her and filled her snack bag with lots of love.
And then again on Saturday morning she was bussed at 9 am until the concert at 3:30.
It was a lot for the conductors to fit in. Only a day and a half.
Four amazingly performed pieces of music. Just amazing.
And my girl was there. Wearing black and white as usual, coming on to the stage to find her seat with that serious look on her face.
She thanked me that night for encouraging her to audition.
It truly was a wonderful opportunity to work under such an accomplished group of dedicated, talented teachers and conductors.
She was tired when it was over.
(how cute are those little girls)
And we were all beaming proud!
