Andrew, I hope you're reading this.
Bronwen and I bought tickets but we were both feeling less than 100% so we elected not to attend, and are happy that our ticket purchases will contribute something to your very good cause.
I'd love a concert report, here or email if you'd rather.
Hi, RMCG, long time no see but I don't use my PC any more, and that's where I used to access the newsgroup from. Now Google Groups ...
Steve, Sorry you and Bronwen were not feeling well and couldn't attend. This was my first solo recital in many years. I just felt I had to move myself forward, and a good way to do that would be a solo concert to benefit the Medical Musician Initiative. For a good while it looked like there wouldn't be a lot of people in attendance but on the day of the concert it was close to a full house. Right up until I went onstage I thought I just wasn't up to it. I thought that after intermission there would be a lot of people gone, and that I wouldn't feel I could attend the reception.
Fortunately, I was wrong. From what I've been told, no one left during the intermission. And to my complete surprise, it was the best concert I've ever played. I had two standing ovations, at the end of the program and after the encore. I did work very hard for ten months preparing for this concert.
So, what's next? I don't know. I don't have concert management and I'm not interested in touring anyway. People have been asking me for years when I'd record another CD and I think that's the next step, probably taking the repertoire from the concert program:::: - https://medicalmusicianinitiative.org/a-benefit-concert
Again, sorry you couldn't be there but thanks for asking about it.
