Celeste Golden Boyer is not only an extraordinary violinist and the orchestra’s Second Associate Concertmaster, in recent years she’s become a remarkable photographer. In this week’s Postcard Thursday, you not only get to know some of what she’s been up to, but you get a view of her personal summer photo album. Here’s Celeste:
This summer has been all about family! Our oldest, Charlotte, just turned three!
Benjamin has started walking, which is a very exciting milestone around here! Nice to have him upright and ready to play with and “stand up” (literally and figuratively) to his sister!
I have enjoyed working on my photography this summer. I have gotten the chance to take photos for lots of people, several of whom are my symphony colleagues! I have loved getting to take their professional head shots, photograph their new babies, and take portraits for young families in the orchestra!
There has been some violin activity–I promise! I just returned from Interlochen Arts Camp last week, where I had the position of Valade Concertmaster Fellow. I enjoyed teaching several young violinists, as well as sitting in on early morning orchestra rehearsals with conductor Josh Weilerstein and working with the students who were learning to play Beethoven 5, most of them for the first time! Of course, being away from the kiddos (and the hubby!) was challenging for this momma’s heart! We are so glad to be reunited, and are enjoying our summer together!
