My girl, my heart — Prairie has battled anxiety, which included but was not limited to, performance.
She determined to celebrate completion of her Suzuki Violin book 2 with a private recital. She had definite ideas how she wanted this to unfold and planned every detail. She chose the location — the historic Chapel of Rest in Happy Valley, North Carolina. She chose her songs, designed and created multi-page programs, including biographies for herself and her brother. She gave explicit instructions to her accompanist, brother Lincoln, and he good-naturedly bent to her every wish. Finally, Prairie even made cookies for the reception afterward.
The acoustics in the Chapel of Rest are awesome though the microphone on my phone recording is less than perfect. However, Prairie’s personality shines over all that.
