…something new comes along.

One of the goals of entering the music festival is to gain performing confidence and experience. It’s about developing the ability that “the show must go on” no matter what. And performing live is unpredictable. Until yesterday I thought I’d seen it all: music falling off the piano, performers falling down the stairs, keys sticking on the piano, a commotion in the audience, and everyone’s biggest worry – a memory lapse.

So yesterday, there was water leaking from the roof onto the piano and the adjudicator’s table. But of course, the young performers handled the delay and disruption with poise and let the music play on. Bravo!
