    During my last recital (my first in decades) I found myself surrounded by 5 – 10 year old fiddlers (I’m nearly 60) who needed help getting tuned up and rosined up. It was a blast to help these young folks (and it did my heart good to see so many young fiddlers).

    In 1976 I was in the Golden Spike Youth Symphony Orchestra, and we went to Philadelphia to participate in some of the bicentennial celebrations, like hundreds of other similar groups did. We performed a matinee concert at Philly’s Symphony Hall, and Maestro Bernstein came on stage afterwards to shake everyone’s hand. It was awesome. ^_^

    I was the same way! I loved competing in marching, concert band and orchestra. I played different instruments in each of those ensembles…which made it more fun!!! 🙂

    My best music experience was when I was in my middle school band. We were doing our first performance, and the teacher decided to play a prank on the audience/parents. So for our first song we all played random notes, it was very funny. She was my favorite music teacher.

    Well… I once passed lindsay Stirling on my way to see one of her performances. I didn’t know she was the one because my friend just told me about her and I didn’t know what she looked like. I took my violin hoping to get it autographed and I was gutted when I realized I stood next to her for like 5 minutes and didn’t even realize it. Lol now that I think of it I was thinking of approaching her when I didn’t know it was her but chickened out….. Who knows maybe I could have been dating her by now ?

    The first time I got to learn how to hold and learn how to handle the violin was a very memorable experience. I was in 5th grade and I was so excited when I finally got to learn how to play

    Here is a fun one. When I was in Highschool, I think 🙂 (It’s been a while) we had a concert with the orchestra, playing Bolero (Ravel). When we got on the stage and getting ready to play we noticed that our part was missing. We panic a bit for a few momnts. Obviously there was nothing we could do at that point. Lucky it was this piece to play, otherwise would have been quite embarassing trying to fake playing the whole piece.. So we literally tried to look at the desk in front of us and to figure out when the chords were changing (lucky most of it was pizzicatto :))) ) and of course listening everything around us, so we don’t do mistakes to look stupid. I guess that was one good lesson and a big stept towards becoming a professional. I will never forget that day.

    Going to Ashokan and hearing Jay Ungar play…and especially one morning when everyone there gathered in a big circle with Jay actually playing the mandolin this time and everyone singing Blowing in the Wind..one of my most fun musical memories.
