Watching now, but will have to finish later. Getting ready for grandkids' arrival in less than two hours!

What I've been able to watch so far, is terrific! And @Ilona, loved to see your smile at the conductor!

The old curmudgeon!

@JohnG - "terrific" - indeed!  I was enjoying it immensely - but today being "my turn to make dinner" LOL - I had to skip through to the kitchen.  Took the lappy with me, but with oily fingers during food-prep, didn't care to touch the keyboard and further engage in the online chat.  lol...   still heard it all - music is great, the speech/talking - was that Klingon perhaps?   Heyyyy - ilonna I was just kidding on that -

So, TYVM @Ilona for sharing your performance with us.  WELL DONE !!!!!!  and BRAVO - clapclapclapclapclap

Dear friends, thank you all so much! ❤️❤️ I almost can’t believe you really watched it, so cool! 

Luckily there was no microphones too close of me, because I can honestly tell I had huge problems with couple of pieces…🤭 Well, I did my best and probably no one in the audience saw or heard the mistakes... I also played two of our pieces for the first time in my life today, and I’m not a big fan of the sightreading tests in front of the audience. But that’s how it goes, everything is new to me because this is my first year in this orchestra. I am so, so grateful for this opportunity. ❤️

@wtw and others -

You can still watch this Christmas Concert from the beginning, now! 

Many beautiful pieces - some I recognized and some others were very new to me! 

 

@Ilona -

I forgot to tell you, I thought you looked very comfortable playing, so you must have been playing perfectly! 🤫

My Brother lives quite far from me.  He watched it LIVE and he thanked me because he loved watching you!  I sent the link to many of my family and friends.  They all said they really enjoyed it - and said to tell you, "Congratulations"! 

You have spread much Joy this Holiday Season - Thank You!

@AndrewH No, usually not all of them. Only if we are playing somewhere where the organizer has the necessary equipment to stream it, like yesterday at church.

We had one streamed concert also earlier this month, on Finland’s independence day. You can watch it here.  (It starts at 13:15 in that video.)

Congratulations @Ilona 

Just watched it. Great job!

I'm glad to see you playing in an orchestra. How long have you been doing that now?

@Fiddlerman I have been playing in the orchestra since September. It has been really awesome! There is so much to learn, and I love every moment!
