Prayer and music performance

For almost as long as I can remember, performing music has helped to define my life. I recall in detail my first piano recital as a little girl and how fear overcame me when I walked up to the piano in front of the audience. However, my studies continued—and so did the performing opportunities as I advanced and grew in confidence. The power and beauty of the music I was playing far outweighed any performance anxiety.

By the time of achieving a professional commitment to a career in music, I was beginning to understand the healing potential of beautiful music and joyously desired to share it at the highest level possible. The thoughts of the great cellist Pablo Casals began to inspire my music: “Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.”

At various times, however, physical conditions relating to just that portion of my body most essential to an instrumentalist, namely my hands, fingers, wrists, or arms, attempted to prevent a performance. In every case, I dealt with the challenges through prayer and triumphed in Spirit.
