Practice makes...better?

I'll be playing in a piano recital a week from Sunday. I'm not too nervous -- yet.

Today I went over to our church to play on the grand piano that I will be playing for the recital. Like all pianos, it has its own intricacies and "feel" of the keys, the pedal, and so forth. I worked on some of the rough spots of the piece and tried to let my hands sing in other parts. It was a good time!

Here is the object of my practice. Beautiful, isn't it?

I hope that I can do the instrument justice. And that I can make my piano teachers (current and "angel") proud.
