MUSICAL LIFE (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 21)This picture was taken on Halloween, shortly afterthe Red Sox lost the 1986 World Series (a particularlypainful loss, as baseball fans will know), probably theworst thing that had happened in my life. I was reallycrushed, but my mom had spent all fall making thatcostume and I couldn’t not wear it. That evening as Iwent trick-or-treating, EVERY house I went to laughedabout how the Red Sox blew it in the series against theMets. And I cried. Sad stuff.Your family?My father (Alan Ehnes) has beenthe trumpet professor at BrandonUniversity for many years. Mymother, as a former ballet dancer,is pretty close to being a musician!I have two siblings who studiedmusic; my brother played the violin,viola, and trumpet. My sister playedviolin, piano, and French Horn,and is now a professional musicaltheatre performer. My uncle is theFrench Horn professor at Ball StateUniversity in Indiana.Where did music, both formal andinformal, fit into various aspects ofyour life at the time the photographwas taken?Violin was my first instrument. Ireceived a violin for Christmas,about a month before my fifthbirthday. I think I started takingformal lessons around that time. Istarted playing the piano at about 8.First experiences of making musicwith others?Group playing is a big part of theSuzuki method, so from a very youngage I made music with other kids. Ihad my first ensemble at about 9: aquartet with my brother on viola.Do you remember the point at whichyou began to think of yourself as amusician?In a sense, from the very start! I knewthat I was good at the violin, and thatgave me a certain amount of pride anda sense of identity.Ever think you’d do anything else?There were (and are!) lots of otherthings ... astronaut, baseball player,spy... .Anything you’d like to say to the littleguy in that childhood photo?I would tell him to not be so sad! Ittook 18 more years… but of course theSox won in 2004, and again in 2007!MarketPlace: Education, Professional and HomeSinging LessonsSing with technical ease and vocal beautyOpera – Pops – Broadwaywww.JanetCatherineDea.comcall now: (416) 429-4502Want to sing???Just give me a ring!!!Been there.
