A big thank you to everyone who came to my recital last Friday! I think the program was very well received, and the variety was fun for the performers and the audience! A particular success for me was staying in character for "What is this Feeling"--always a challenge because I have to pretend to be mad at my wonderful friend Amber! I don't know how many times we cracked each other up during the rehearsal process, but fortunately there's nothing like an audience to help keep you focused! David Chavannes and I have so much fun with Poulenc's "La courte paille," with it's playful changes of mood and tempo. And I feel like my relationship with Fleming's "Confession Stone" is just beginning...I hope this piece can be in my repertoire for many, many years to come!
