Camera Phone Friday - Recital Hall

Last Sunday, I had the privilege of performing in a beautiful concert hall on campus.

Smith Hall #uiuc

Inside, on the large stage, the acoustics are so wonderful, I couldn't even imagine such a beautiful sound coming out of my instrument. I almost lost my place in the music as I became lost in the melody swirling around me.
The Stage is Set #uiuc #chambana

The details on the ceiling - reliefs of lyres, horns and other musical elements - designed specifically for the love of music.

I managed to play without getting too nervous - for this recital, I played Schubert's Violin Sonata, D 574 in A Major, Massenet's Meditation from Thais and the Bach Double Concerto, which was performed with a group.

Time to Play #violin

I hope I get to play there again.

oh wow.. I LOVE music halls like that and I LOVE the violin (well, just about any instrument really)

there's a college in GA, Clayton State University, they have an amazing Hall. Harry Connick Jr performed there with his jazz band and it was AMAZING!

would have LOVED to hear your music!
