    So my youth symphony, (CYSO = Cascade Youth Symphony Orchestra) just played at Benaroya Hall here in Seattle, and I nailed it. I played the best I EVER have... it was simply amazing in that Hall.

    We played:
    Shostakovich 5 Mvt. 4 (Finale)
    Concerto for Cello (Dvorak)
    Afro-American Symphony Mvt. 1+3 (William Grant Still)

    our second half (performed with a Gospel Choir) was:
    Lift Every Voice and Sing
    and a few songs composed by Dr. Stephen Michael Newby (really great guy, he was there and conducted us... great musicican all around)

    I have to say THIS is why I play... it is so amazing when the work is all done.


    (P.S. Manny thanks so much for the tips on Shostakovich, I played the solo beautifully...)

    I have played in Benaroya Hall, too. It is in fact an amazing hall to perform in!
