Playing in the Orchestra

I had the amazing opportunity to play with the New Irish Orchestra as they played behind Keith and Krysten Getty in Derry last weekend. This talented couple has been writing modern hymns for several years and one of their most popular is "In Christ Alone". I was a little over my head with only four days to practice the 15+ songs, but it was very good for me. I haven't practiced my violin that much in I don't know how long! 

Can you see me? I am in the back row of the orchestra (on the floor), second violin from the right. My friend, Ramona, is sitting right in front of me. David took a short little video clip so you could get a taste of the atmosphere. Too bad there was a tall guy sitting right in front of him!

How great was that? That couple did the music at this last year's Revive our Hearts women's conference. I didn't go but I was able to watch it on a live feed at home on my computer. What a fun experience for you Mel!
Love you, Krista
P.S. please post more belly pictures soon. It is so fun to see your progress. :)
