trying to put it into words
This is one of the best concerts that I performed so far.
What’s interesting about this show is that each and every detail of it was taken care of, and when all of it is assembled together- it gives an exhilarating experience.
We were given the chance to focus in improving our music, and we were treated really well.
I love it when the tickets are sold properly, printed as equal as the other standard production tickets of the theater house.
I love it when rehearsals are done strategically, and for the last few days we were given coupons to get any food that we want from the café.
It gave me chills when I entered the actual hall for the final rehearsal-
Facing the audience seats,
Dim lights showering us,
An elegant design of the hall that I’ve always accustomed to see as a concert goer-
but this time in the perspective of a performer, standing onstage.
It’s somehow similar to what I’ve ever dreamt of in my imagination.
It’s so surreal.
These are few pictures I took on the big day.
Lower brass warming up, before the show.
Felt like a star when I entered from backstage, just after the dressing room.
And then it was the time of the performance.
I love it when the orchestra is able to produce good sound-
-good pitch, well balanced volume between the winds and the strings,
-extremely emphasized dynamics- it ranges from the softest whisper of the strings, to the loudest bang of the timpani.
-expression is put deep into the music, all of us could feel the emotions in it- be it sorrow of the solemn parts or the grandeur feeling of the maestoso.
Two musicians and a mineral water bottle- backstage.
This concert, I’ve created a record by inviting my relatives to the concert.
They came, and I was overwhelmed.
They all enjoyed the concert very much,
And they were astounded that these young musicians could produce such excellent music.
For most of my relatives, that was the first time they watched me performed.
It’s felt like this declaration- this is who I am, this is what I do in life.
This is not the end of it.
I have a long journey to go.
Like we all say- the sky is the limit.
I am looking forward for more.
