I just have to share this awesome toot for my girls!!! They both play the violin - Alice (9) has been playing since last September and Emi (10) started playing in April this year. Today, they were invited by their violin teacher to attend a 'fun day' for PASSO which is "Petersfield Area Schools String Orchestra" - which has a pretty wide catchment area including quite a few schools and has about 30 selected members. They have also won lots of awards - coming first in the South of England Music festival. The kids got to watch the orchestra rehearse and they also had an entertainer, and it finished with a concert. At the end of the day, their teacher came up to us and invited them both to join the orchestra as of September!!!! It is such a privilege and of course, they didn't need to be asked twice - they both immediately said yes!! Needless to say, I am so excited and just had to tell you all!!!

My daughter would have loved an opportunity like that. Unfortunately, the youth orchestra here is so expensive that there is not way we could ever afford it.

That is such a shame - we are lucky enough to have the orchestra funded by the Hamphire County Music Service, so we don't have to pay anything for it - otherwise, that would have been an issue for us too.
