We Set a Date

I know, I know, this is moving pretty fast. But we've known each other a long time. It's a bit of a whirlwind romance, but I'm hoping the friendship will carry us through.

So, the piano and I hope you'll join us on April 7 at 6:00 at Dayne's Music for my first solo recital in 13 years. Oh my. Actually, I'm not sure that I hope you'll join us. It makes me nervous to think about living bodies listening to me perform memorized music. BUT, since playing for people is the point of a solo recital, I guess I'll really have to extend the invitation.

This is not a summons. I will not be offended if you don't come. I will probably be relieved. Even if just David and three or four of my closest (read, will not judge me harshly) friends are there, I'll be happy. So if you have prior plans or need to wash your hair, if you're feeling like reading a book or don't want to drive, that is SO FINE.

Wow. I really did it. I scheduled it. Nothing like fear to motivate good, hard work.

The program? Oh. Yeah. I have to play something, don't I? I'll be working on that this weekend and will let you know, but I know it will be a relaxed, intimate program with music that doesn't give me hives.

Exciting and terrifying, all at the same time.
