Fine Arts Festival - Cello

After her audition in the morning, Dayna and I went to tune her cello with the piano I would use in performance that night. It was there we learned our first lesson about tired cello strings. After a frantic trip to Lincoln for new strings, and a gracious visit with her cello instructor to restring the instrument for us, we were good to go again.

It turns out her cello performance was second from the end. The final performer was running late, coming straight from a basketball tournament. After she performed the piece she had prepared (Minuet No. 2), we filled time until the final performer could arrive. I'm so proud of her poise and preparation to play pieces she hadn't planned to perform (and my high school English teacher would be proud of my use of alliteration in that last sentence!)
