Why music moves me

During winter break, I was digging through old stuff, and I found a CD I hadn't heard in a long, long time. It's the recording of a concert I played in with the Timpanogos Chamber Orchestra in 2001. This is what I did on Saturday mornings all through high school. I was in 9th grade at the time of this recording. I started listening to the CD, and I was blown away by what I heard. Here are a few tracks for your listening pleasure.

Meditation by Joseph Suk

Andante from Rakastava by Jean Sibelius

Praelude from "Holberg" Suite by Edvard Grieg

Rondo from Serenata Notturna by Mozart

Can you believe this is a bunch of high schoolers? I have a hard time believing it when I listen. Amazing. The orchestra was (and still is, I believe) conducted by Lois Stout.

Music moves me because it's been such an important part of my life since I was a little kid. I feel lucky to have been part of such a magnificent group at such a young age.
