Walgreens Concerto Competition

In December, I competed in the Walgreens Concerto Competition.  I played the Weber Concertino.  This was my first competition.  I was very nervous.  Before I performed, Dr. Dennis, my orchestra director, told me to "play like a wild man -- in a good way."  So I did.  I played really well for the first two themes, but I rushed the third one and got tangled up.

Still, I got an honorable mention, and I want to do it again next year.

Here's a video.  I think I've come a long ways over the past thousand hours of practice.
