This one is from my regular orchestra. The pandemic gave us the rare opportunity to work with a highly sought-after opera star, and this is the result. Members of the Camellia Symphony Orchestra (in California) and mezzo-soprano Katija Dragojevic (in Sweden) present Cherubino's aria "Voi che sapete" from Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro.

AndrewH - Laughing Clapping EmoticonsReally nice, a special treat with Katija! 

Very interesting with all the pizzacato. 

Thank you for sharing your (& your Orchestra's) performance - you've been busy!    How's the shoulder holding up?

That made my morning a lot more cheerful.

Thanks for sharing, Andrew.

I haven't played at all in two weeks. I actually recorded this video the last week of July.

What was going on was: I was mostly recovered in May and June, but then re-injured the shoulder in a car accident in July where I was rear-ended while stopped at a red light. I kept practicing (but limited my practice time) until the end of a 6-week online viola technique bootcamp I was doing, and recorded some virtual orchestra videos during that time, then decided to take a few weeks off from the viola.
