SC State Youth Philharmonic Strings Orchestra

The girl had her first performance with the Strings Orchestra in the SC State Youth Philharmonic.

It was lovely.  We're looking forward to when she plays with a full orchestra--either the Rep or Youth Orch.  When I was younger and played violin, we played with a full orchestra, which included woodwinds, percussion, and occasional brass like a French horn.  Here and in SoCal, it seems they feature strings-only orchestras.  Maybe due the large number of kids playing? Or is this how it's all being done now?

Anyhoo, proud of my lovely girl and glad for a little downtime after a busy weekend.

when ethan had his recital or whatever it was, it was his entire school (well just the kids old enough to play instruments) and it was separated by strings and winds, but not mixed. maybe it's a thing.
