    Off to camp!

    Hey guys!
    I'm going to a music camp this summer starting tomorrow (Saturday). I'll be back in two weeks.

    It's a great camp for string players taught by members of the Pilly Orchestra. I learn so much there and my playing improves so dramaticly!

    I can't wait!!

    And best of all, the cafeteria food is REALLY good!

    So, do all of you use your bows to roast marshmallow over a fire under the stars at night during a full moon? So that's what my string tech professor meant by "Sticky Bows"!
    This sounds like fun. I've never heard of something like this! I am jealous! Have a great time and let us know how everything turns out!
    Hey, you could start the cptexas fireside string method course! Naw, maybe not. Have fun!

    Actually, this camp isn't very 'campy' at all. It's held in Bryn Mawr, PA (right by Philly) at Bryn Mawr College (the sister campus of Villanova) which is a beautiful campus (will post many pictures). It's more like a school setup during a typical day. Wake up, camp meeting, orch. rehersal for 3 hours , lunch, private practice for three hours , chamber for two hours, an hour of free time (will bring my laptop and work on my tripple concerto druring this), dinner, and then evening activities. Fun, fun, fun!!

    CAN'T WAIT!!!!
