The recital was fantastic! I played mostly wonderfully and had a big crowd (50+ maybe?) that all loved the music! Brett recorded it on video and audio so there will be something going up somewhere sometime soonish. But really, I'm proud. AND despite hours of procrastination and my best efforts to shoot myself in the foot, I did actually manage to get my program notes finished and I was very happy with them. You can absolutely tell which bit I wrote at 4am though - I become pretty descriptive with enough sleep deprivation. Only downside is that I don't think anyone took any pictures of the audience or of me with my recital-helpers. And we should've had people sign the back of the huge poster Brett made for me. Hindsight 20/20, blah blah blah. But a rousing success! And I passed! WOOHOO!
Up at 7am today, ready to go! Not exhausted, despite the 3 pumpkin ales I had last night, and the mind abuzz with things I can do and learn now that the recital is over. YAY!! :)
