Last week (14th of November actually) I had my final recital at the Conservatorium of Music for my degree! It's amazing to think that I might finally be finished... (it's been a battle over 6 years). And of course as much as it matters what one plays, it matters what one wears. So I bought this special dress a while ago and was looking forward to wearing it. It's Alannah Hill (and I don't mean to bombard you and make it seem like I have an addiction..) and I absolutely adore it. It scratches something off my wish list which is: a maxi dress, and it makes me want to go strolling in a garden with a parasol to go drink tea.
First up are a couple of photos from my actual recital! For interested people I played: the first movement of Der Schwanendreher by Hindemith, the first solo suite for viola by Reger, and the Brahms Eflat
clarinet viola sonata.
|I have to thank various people for photographs. And for coming along at all!|
|Sorry about the quality here; this one is off my mum's phone.|
|Family photo! (minus my siblings.. isn't that the best way?). All cheesy grins.|
|So I thought I'd pretend I lived in the house and was coming out..|
|Look at the socks!!! Yes, they are also Alannah Hill.|
|Because I don't mind looking silly sometimes! Let's just refrain from zooming in though..|
|And the dress in motion|
|And back the other way..|
|And the close-up so you can see the pattern. There are actually little sequins in places defining the flowers. (Perhaps I should've tried to get the crinkles out..)|
