I managed to get video of Alyssa's solo on my phone. The sound quality isn't the greatest but I am still a proud father. I am so impressed with all that this young woman does every day. She truly is a gift from the Lord. Here is the link: http://youtu.be/kDtvyDc7zII
This competition was held at Linn-Mar High School in Marion, Iowa this last weekend. Her judge said that her arrangement was too "poppy" and not classical enough. Thus, she received a II instead of a I. Still, for a freshman, I felt her perfomance was great. Her dynamics were spot on - especially in the 2nd piece (Caro Mio Ben) and her enunciation was light years ahead of her classmates.
