On Monday we bought C a new cello for his Honor Orchestra audition. It was quite a sight to be in a music store surrounded by thousands of dollars worth of beautiful musical instruments.
E took pictures as C tried different cellos. The above is one of my favorites because it captures the symmetry of the instruments, while showing the subtle differences in stain and shape.
C chose a very delicate and lightweight instrument. It has a sweet sound. More than anything, hearing it played reminds me of C’s own sweetness. :)
C told me that he was thinking of naming his cello Diana, because it’s such a beautiful name. I have to say that I agree.
