…Just one more week till the end of term.
Had recorders and a practice of the musical evening.
At the event I kept bumping into the flower display.
Me playing the piano was the most funniest [sic] thing that has ever happened in the world.
I played The Entertainer by Scott Joplin…
This is me trying to pull on the twin cloaks of nonchalance and bluster in light of the previous time I treated an audience to my piano-playing.
The event was a musical concert to mark the end of the school year. I’m not sure with which other items I was involved; I’m guessing it was the recorder ensemble. But I was only really bothered by how my solo spot was received.
And it went pretty well. It got a round of applause, which was more than last time.
I’m not sure it entirely made up for the catastrophe that was the school assembly. But it did restore a bit of self-pride and, judging by the “funniest thing” remark, a bit of self-deprecating cockiness.
The Entertainer was my party piece for a while. Then I got a bit more confident and moved on to the theme from Film ’86.
