If you’ve read my blog for more than a week, you probably know that my daughter plays piano. Yes, I tend to brag about it every other week [day], but I’m her mom, and it’s my job. Maybe if Finn or Trixie would step it up a bit and learn to play an instrument, I’d have a little more variety, but until that happens, you’re just going to hear me brag once more about Audrie.
Audrie recently participated in a Roland piano festival here in Austin, one of many held across the US. This is her performance of Hedwig’s Theme from Harry Potter:
She ended up winning this round to move on to the semifinals. For the semifinals, Audrie was recorded playing her song, and her performance was judged against the recorded winners from the other festivals. We just got notified last week that Audrie made it to the final round, so they’re flying her out to Los Angeles next month to play in the finals! Of course, we’re going, too, as well as the
paparazzi grandparents. I don’t know if my daughter’s ever done anything in her life without an entourage of at least 20 people cheering her on.
It’s going to be an exciting trip, and I’m sure I’ll have plenty to brag about by the end of it. I’m also pretty sure that my family will somehow make it into the tabloids while we’re there.
