|The orchestra playing at Tony Grove|
A few weeks ago Andrew played a violin solo at our Stake Standards Night. He played extremely well and touched the 400 or so people there. Many people came up afterwards and told him how beautiful it was. One woman, Rhonda Thompson, said she was so impressed that she wanted to see if he would be interested in being part of a small orchestra for a music video she was doing in October.
We assumed this would be a small time production -- how wrong we were. The video was shot today at one of our favorite places -- Tony Grove in Logan Canyon -- by a professional team with an office in Nashville. The star of the video is the singing and video star, Alex Boye. Last year Boye did a very impressive video with the Piano Guys that has been viewed 20 million times! Here is the link if you want to watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cgovv8jWETM
Andrew was part of a small orchestra that included three violins, two cellos and one base. The Director told me, "He is terrific -- so expressive and wonderful -- we got some great shots of him..." Obviously the orchestra will be a very small part of the final music video but I suspect it will include a few good shots of Andrew. It also will feature two grand pianos on the shore of Tony Grove.

The video will be completed in a month or so. I look forward to seeing it.
