Over the summer I was in China on tour with one of my orchestras. Among the pictures I took in Hongzhou, there was a serendipitous snapshot of a barrel making young man which can be found on here now.
I am now at Uni for Harp, and solfege is a dream come true. To look at a score and be able to read it like a page from a book (I'm not that good yet, will get there!)... it is wondrous.
