Violinist Victoria Pearson dreams of attending Johann Conservatory of Music in New York City for graduate school. As the oldest of five sisters, she hopes to escape her Midwestern college town and hectic family situation to fulfill her passion in life—music. But when she decides to participate in Belton University's Concerto competition to bolster her chances of acceptance, Victoria finds herself competing against her sister Adrienne and lifelong cellist friend Jerry Chang. This sets in motion a rivalry that questions the roles of sisterhood, friendship, and maybe love.

Victoria wants to maintain the rigors required of a professional classical musician without losing her family and friends, not to mention her sanity, in the process. The demands of her large family might hinder her ability to achieve her dreams. What sacrifices will she make to reach her goals, and are they worth the cost? A new, twenty-first-century generation of little women takes the stage in A Change in Tune.

Victoria arched an eyebrow. “Didn’t you enjoy the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, arguably the greatest violin piece ever written?”

Adrienne sighed. “Why couldn’t we play a work for a lesser-known instrument?” She lowered her short frame into a chair near Victoria’s case.

“Like the viola?” Victoria folded her arms across her chest.

“Yes, for example.” Adrienne fluffed her pixie blonde haircut. “It’s more original than the violin.”

Victoria frowned. “Composers have always written popular works for violin.”

Crossing her legs, Adrienne’s ankle boot began to bounce up and down. “Well, I prefer original to popular.” Her foot, which bobbed with extreme vigor, kicked over Victoria’s violin case. “Oops.” Her tone belied her apology. Why couldn’t Victoria’s twenty-year-old sister stop acting like a teenager?

Victoria slid her case closer to Jerry, away from Adrienne. “Is that why you’re wearing a yellow sweater when you should be in all black––to be original?”
