Wedding Providence, Rhode Island July 22

This was another outdoor wedding in late July.  When I arrived they placed me on a pier like structure overlooking the water.  It was so windy that every time I got up to change my music my chair would blow over!  I had to sit and secure my music stand with my feet the entire 2 hours of the wedding ceremony and the cocktail hour.  The wind constantly picked up my bow and slid it to the other end of the violin – I felt like all of my technique that is required for subtlety and artistry was taken from me and I was just holding on to the bow for dear life!  Although this wedding was a tough one due to the weather conditions, I feel that it was a great experience for being resourceful and forcing me to perform under very difficult circumstances.
