Re: Recital tips
Well, in my graduating recital, here's what I remember. You have a program for the people attending the recital. The accompaniest is out there first at the piano for a little bit. Warm up in the back, where no one can see you. Come out, bow, and play your first song. I remember I did not introduce myself, it was basically silent, but music. I played about the first have of the program(2 or 3 good classical pieces). Then, I bowed, walked off stage into the back, the accompaniest stayed out there on the piano bench. After a drink, and a few adjustments, I came out and performed my last songs, bowed, waited for the applause to end, and walked off the stage. Pretty intense, but that was the graduate shit, so I'm guessing there will be less tension in this scenario.
