When we returned, the NSO played one of my "dream" concerts. We played the soundtrack to Back to the Future, while the movie played on a giant screen above us at Wolf Trap. When I was just starting out on the horn, Back to the Future was in theaters, and I was obsessed with the soundtrack. My ears had just opened up to hearing the horn in music, so that, coupled with my BIG CRUSH on Michael J. Fox fueled my love for the movie. Playing the fun horn part was such a thrill, and meeting Lea Thompson and composer Alan Silvestri was icing on the cake!
August is bringing an incredible trip! I am going to Peru with two girlfriends. We will spend a few days in Cuzco, adjusting to the altitude, and then we will start a 5 day trek to Machu Piccu! We're going with a company called Llama Path, which has great reviews. I have been obsessing over what to pack, since it is winter in Peru, and constantly looking at pictures on Instagram of what other people are wearing. Stay tuned to find out if I was freezing or not!
