Proud dad (part 2)
Last year, when Phoenix won the 1st prize at the Claude Kahn piano contest and performed at Salle Gaveau, Alaia told us that she too wanted to perform there. So she started piano and this year, at 4yo, she entered the Claude Kahn Contest 2017 in the 1st-year category. Last week, she performed among many others and to our delight also won the 1st prize in her category and the right to play at Salle Gaveau in front of 700 people.
On Saturday, you were the 1st to get on stage. You didn't really tell us but I believe you got a bit of stage fright... which led you to play a bit hesitantly and an octave too high. Mummy had told you: "if you make a mistake, just continue as if you hadn't made any"... well you continued and played as if nothing had happened. You did know though and left the stage a bit fast at the end, forgetting to bow which you usually never forget to do.
still very proud of you Alaia!! Got the blues by Bastien
