Harpsichord Fever!

I'm pretty psyched! I practised on the harpsichord at CMC today. I'm going to be playing JS Bach's Harpsichord Concerto in f minor with CMC's little orchestra at the end of this month. Never played a harpsichord concerto before! And, I actually wrote my own cadenza for the third movement! 
 I'll put up a video of me playing the harpsichord next week. It's a funky little instrument. For those of you that don't know, it's like a small piano, but instead of hammers hitting the strings, they are plucked. I am adjusting to the fact that I can't produce any dynamics (Louds and softs), but with my small hands and the smaller keys on a harpsichord, we are a nice fit! I may have to get one of my very own! 
I'll post details about the performance, if anyone would like to come. It will be free! :)
