The excitement before the violin recital....

is palpable in this beautiful picture! I am sure the music was lovely! I especially love the interested tilt of the boy's head as he looks on to see if she's got it just right. Thank you, Jerrie Zhao, Things 4 Strings China Sales Agent, for sending us for sending this lovely pic!
