Today, my daughter Audrey competed in the Arizona Flute Society young artists competition. This is her final year in the Debut (4th-6th grade) division. In 4th grade, she took the only honorable mention. In 5th grade, she took 3rd place. This year, in 6th grade, she tied for first place!
She played Haydn's Serenade, and played it well, despite the fact that her piano accompanist had to recover from having a page of music upside-down as a result of dropping the music. Audrey played on without missing a beat, allowing the pianist to jump back into the piece quickly.
