gus and his smokin' kontrabas at ericsonhallen

gus had his first public performance in stockholm at ericsonhallen on skeppsholmen this evening, and what an amazing concert it was! he played for a little over an hour with his current orchestra from kulturskolan--västerots ungdoms symfoniker--and he did wonderfully. it is hard enough to stand up in front of an audience and perform, but imagine what it must be like to be spoken to/about in a language you don't understand...and be 13 on top of it...yet he did it all with ease. i swear he's gifted that way.

rich shot this video of the second piece performed by the orchestra--peter's "erinnerungg an zirkus rentz." go gus!
