Brava, MIli on the Vivaldi! Wicked key, and you did a fabulous job. Great sound! Doesn't the last movement end oddly? I couldn't be more proud of you!!

Rather than "nerd out" as one reviewer says, it is fantastic to see in this day and age, young professionals who will get their Bachelors and Masters and spend seven hours a day practicing plus continue with all the requirements and obligations in order to become the next generation of Bach's, Verdi's and Mozarts. Some of these young adults will go on to be the decision makers and artists of this civilization. There is a young man 6 feet 3 inches playing the violin in the third presentation whose great grand parents played in vaudeville and had a silent movie theater, his grandfather played 12 different. Instruments and he has worked his entire life to be where he is now, on the journey of his lifetime to perform and fulfill his heritage. Professionals and artists in the making, YES. "Nerds" ?, not in the real world.

My wife and I came to see this amid a busy work day, and I think we were the youngest there by 30 years). The hour-long "rest" was worth every minute of "lost productivity." These young musicians are both extremely talented and inspiring. It's good to know that there are people out there (at Juilliard, anyway) who nerd out and preserve this historical music. Plus, there's no better way to see it than live.

Great program of a lesser known music, nicely presented from a historical perspective. Thanks!
