A HUGE, sincere thank you to each and every person that was involved in last week's successful benefit concert for the Alzheimer's Association. It was truly an honor to perform for such a receptive and loving audience while sharing the stage with such genuine musicians. ...in loving memory was easily the most emotionally exhausting recital I have ever presented and, yet, it was extremely rewarding and powerful to allow myself to be so vulnerable on stage.
Of course, pushing myself to my extreme limits since last September has certainly taken its toll. From professional audition prep in September, to my first senior recital in October, to my trip to Russia at the end of November, to a world premiere in Georgia in December, to all five graduate school auditions throughout January and February, to performing with the Louisiana Philharmonic in March, to last week's jam-packed schedule with the benefit concert and Lineage Percussion's school shows and recording sessions, it is no wonder that I am writing today's post while in bed with a cold! However, this has afforded me the time to reflect on last Wednesday's concert. Continue reading below to find out how much money was raised at the event, view photos from the concert, re-watch clips from the performance, and more!
I hope to see many of you at tonight's benefit concert at 7:30 PM in Crowder Hall at The University of Arizona's Fred Fox School of Music!
If you go: Even if you cannot donate, you are still welcome to attend tonight's concert! However, free-will donations will be collected at the door before the event and during intermission. Morgen Hartford, Regional Director of the Southern Arizona's Alzheimer's Association, will be in attendance to collect donations and issue receipts to all donors. Please arrive early as the lines may get long as 7:30 approaches! It is easiest to park in the "Park Avenue Garage" and to walk to the Fred Fox School of Music via the underpass that leads underneath Speedway. (Download the map by clicking here)
If you can't go: You can still watch tonight's event LIVE online! The video will also be archived and available for viewing after the concert. You are also encouraged to send in a donation online. All online contributions go directly to the Alzheimer's Association and you will be issued a receipt via your email address.

We are officially three weeks away from my benefit concert scheduled for March 22nd to raise $10,000 for the Alzheimer's Association. By now, assuming you have read my "save the date" post, you have hopefully added the information for the concert to your calendar. So, what if you live out of the state or you realized you are unfortunately busy the night of the event?
