    My Senior recital is coming up...fast. This Wednesday (28th) at 6:30 EST...

    I'm playing a very difficult program, and it's only just starting to mesh together, so I need all your support :)

    The program is:
    Sonate for clarinet and piano, by Camille Saint-Saëns
    Three Pieces for Clarinet, by Igor Stravinsky
    Luminescence, by Geoff Knorr (a friend of mine, this is a World Premier)
    Contrasts, by Belá Bartók

    If all goes well, I'll host the audio files on my website for all to hear!

    Here's hoping it all goes smoothly!!! [​IMG] I'm sure it will

    That's extremely cool that you're playing in a world premiere of a piece. I'm really looking forward to hearing the audio, although I'll miss this part of the visual ---> [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'll wish you all sorts of good luck; how's that? :)

    It sounds like a very challenging program. I'd love to hear it if you could get it on your site - that would be fun!

    Positive vibes for a great performance coming your way. :sun:

    Pffft! He will have an official photographer, ya know! :lol:

    (ok, so I doubt I'll actually be able to take pictures of the actual recital...)

    But in all seriousness....Joe, I'm sure you're going to do great....obviously you're going to have all my good vibes (or I wouldn't be flying out to see it), but you don't need LUCK.

    All those songs probably sound great... but why aren't they letting you play "Three Blind Mice"?

    ;)

    Bela Bartok! A fave of mine. Play well (I know you will) and enjoy while doing it. Remember why you study the clarinet, for your pleasure of making music so others can enjoy. Please yourself first (no reason to be nervous for that) and the audience will love it.

    Have fun!

    Thank you :D
    Corry-as long as you aren't walking around and such, and as long as you don't have AF beep or flash on, you can take pics...just use discretion.

    LM-that's the encore.

    Dmitri-that's always been my opinion. I play for myself first, the audience second, and those who give out the grades/rankings/etc. last. As far as the Bartok goes...it's certainly a fav of mine too, just so much fun to play!
