    I played the violin from the time I was 9 until I was college. I stopped playing my sophomore year because I couldn't fit everything into my schedule. I played for another year when I was senior and on exchange.

    Fast forward 13 years to now. I haven't played in 13 years. I just committed to joining a community orchestra!!

    [​IMG] omg i just committed to playing a concert in 7 weeks [​IMG]

    I'm excited about it. I haven't told many people around me because I want it to be a surprise.

    We'll be playing Mozart's Concert fo Clarinet (all movements): (this is the 1st movement) and 2 other pieces.

    I need to find a music stand!!

    That's awesome! I played cello for many years and sang in choir from age 6-20. I often think about joining a local choir. Hope you have a great time in your orchestra!

    I've played guitar for 25 yrs. It's so relaxing to make your own music. Don't worry about not having played for a while, it all comes back quickly. I didn't play for 4 years and picked it up again. Good luck in your new endeavor.

    TOTALLY fits in with my theory below, 39-year-old orchestra you-go-girl! (I'm 41, starting chickens, and new mother of adopted 2.5 year-old-son.) Keeps us young, to change things up.
