The Swan

Today I spent the day off school with the rest of AYS to perform thrice to Auckland Primary schools.

Overall, successful, but I’m writing a blip about it because this was my first time performing Saint-Saën’s Swan (from The Carnival of the Animals) in public!

It went really well on my part, though the harps and piano were frequently out of sync…

My father sat in on the final concert and recorded it. I am rather pleased by my performance, though it is amazing how much uncertainty can put one off! I found that I could go through every thought I had throughout the piece and, especially when the parts weren’t together, it was reflected in my playing! Quite a potent way to discover this…
