In October 2013 I picked up a violin for the first time. Northern Kentucky University has this great program for beginner adults who would like to learn to play a string instrument. Violin always appealed to me for some reason, so I joined. within about a year, I was able to move to an intermediate level class.
In the summer of 2016, I joined a 6-week long Community Orchestra session, directed by James Ledbetter, and culminating in a concert shared below.
Astor Piazzolla : Oblivion
Astor Piazzolla : Libertango
David R. Holsinger : On a Hymnsong of Philip Bliss
