This one was hard to think of. A song that has many meanings to me is Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. I was a violinist for 10 years, and this piece was probably my proudest accomplishment.
In the summer of 2013 I toured Germany with the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp International Youth Symphony Orchestra, and we played this piece in six different towns there.
That was the best summer of my life, so it’s a great reminder of that. It’s also a great reminder of my years playing violin. Afterwards, I found out that this was my grandpas favorite, so it also makes me feel close to him.
