NYO Day 2 – Section Bonding Night – Cake Decorating

Yes, it happened. The second violins did cake decorating!

All organised by good old Djeikub. Here he is showing the napkins he brought for us to use:

There are a lot of photos(!) but I must save them for the NYO blog…

Today we rehearsed the Britten and Adams and I did not suffer from any head concentration pains. My discomfort was felt more in my face and cheeks, after I sustained a satisfactory smile during our photo shoot. The front desks of the strings posed in the hallway on top of some black cases; we were literally sitting or, in Principal Viola’s case, standing on top of various boxes and containers. I’m sure it made us look very edgy.

Following that, we were photographed during our full orchestra rehearsal. At one point, the photographer was standing on the conductor’s podium, right in front of me with his lens. I was practising comfortably until I realised what was happening. Suddenly, I felt extremely self-conscious and tried to cower away by chatting to Djeikub and the other people beside me.

Did not work.

Noooooo… Photos of me playing are unbearable and the thought of my photo being used to represent something like NYO terrifies the life out of me!

Tomorrow, New Year’s Eve! Fancy Dress! Seconds violins are going as Nerds. Goodnight, I better do my French essay. With love.
