Week 3, Scene 3

Saturday, February 20th: I didn’t have time to grab any other pieces as I was frantically running out of the house this morning, so I decided to keep on keepin’ on with Jacques Casterede’s, Twelve Studies for Flute, Etude 5. I was glad to see that this etude is another lyrical etude, which allowed me to keep my practicing brief on this already crazy busy day. We had a wonderful dinner at El Arepazo last night with Michael Lester, and I’m happy to report that we will be working on some pretty amazing projects this year! No details yet as these plans aren’t set in stone but we will keep you posted for sure. 😉

Sunday, February 21st: After playing two services at Peace Lutheran Church this morning in Gahanna, Joe and I rushed home to eat lunch and then I played Jacques Casterede’s, Twelve Studies for Flute, Etude 6. This etude consists of continuous triplet groups to be felt in the measure. The fast tempo and large groupings give the etude a cascading feel, which is how I feel today as I rush from one event to the next. Now I’m off for the MTMS Valentine’s Party until about 9pm this evening. (Does anyone want to do my grocery shopping for me today?!? No, okay then I’ll squeeze that into tomorrow’s busy schedule.) Come listen to my student flute choir tonight as they perform Spanish Love Song and Eye of the Tiger. Oh yeah! 😉
