Adeline participated in an adjudicated arts festival at the end of April. She did two classical pieces as well as performing with some friends in a fiddle group. They did a choreographed medley of traditional klezmer tunes and it was fabulous! Unsurprisingly they won an award and were asked to perform at the Honours concert, which was on Mother's Day. There are no videos or pictures from the performance (they are very serious about this rule!) but we were allowed to snap a photo as they received the award. There was a cash prize and a plaque that has a complicated traveling schedule so that each girl gets an equal amount of time with it before it needs to be returned next year, but really Adeline was just so thrilled to get a chance to perform with her friends for a very enthusiastic audience. Adeline is rarely excited to practice, but she loves to be on the stage! The concert was a great way to spend part of my special day. I'm so proud of Adeline and all her hard work and dedication. Even when things don't come easily (grapevining while playing the violin is REALLY HARD) she keeps working until she gets it.
