Our 14 year old is in Alaska playing with the Alaskan Symphony...
Well, David, once again your lovely granddaughter's talent shines through. Congratulations on having such a multi-talented family.
As always, she's amazing!
Jeez, to think when I was 14 I thought Smoke on the Water and Stairway were challenges.
Seriously, great talent.
very nice Growl, thanks for posting, I know just how proud Granddads can be
Impressed heck I have trouble playing my cds
Very impressive young woman
Congrats to your granddaughter and family @GatorGrowl. There's something very special about musicians who play classical music on string instruments. It requires unique skills and sensitivities. This is a major accomplishment on her part. Hope she had a great experience!
The word prodigy, doesn't do her justice. She is far beyond that.
How many granddaughters do you have that play the violin Growl?
Any more pictures of the China doll you can share?
This is the performance... It is long (over 18 minutes) so I know there are only a few who will watch the entire thing, those that love Iris or love classical music..... She is very good here.
Three granddaughter, two play the violin. The youngest (Sophia) is 5 months old and she was born to my other son who does not do the music like the oldest.
Grace (China Doll) will be 9 in September, have not seen many photos of here as of late, but will look. She also take violin at Vanderbilt (Blair School of Music) but none of the grands have the passion to play like Iris. Gideon, who is 12 will play the banjo in competition for the first time tomorrow. Jordan 17, is the most versatile in that he plays about any string and plays well, but his specialty is the mandolin.
