It was such an honor to be invited back…
There was no applause, so it’s difficult to tell if people enjoyed it… I posted about 8 short videos to YouTube; just search for blueroseviolin. Here is a n excerpt of one of them: https://youtu.be/LJYb0nhqO4I
I can see that I still favor my right side ( broken rib) and used my hand more than my wrist when bowing. As for my left hand ( broken bones repaired with pins that were subsequently removed), I did not keep my knuckles raised enough, so my vibrato was very tight. I also need a new shoulder rest-the rubber feet are worn out and I was afraid I might drop my instrument! All in all, I got to celebrate my recovery doing what I an most passionate about and hope to improve further as time goes on!
I am obsessed with being involved, whenever possible, with this kind of event, not just because of my heritage, but also the stories of the righteous non-Jews who risked, and often sacrificed, their lives, as well. With the current resurgence of antisemitism, it is a scary world we live in.
