That was surprisingly easy. One of my friends has a son Alex's age and they're buddies. She agreed to keep Alex OVERNIGHT so I can go to the Zankel Hall Recital. I didn't hesitate to get a ticket - Row CC, Seat 6.
Ooh I just went here to follow the links to get to Zankel Hall to put a link here and there's a description of the event! Thanks Nathan, perfect timing. (By the way, it's effects, not affects. There's my job coming through my blog aaaarrrrhhhhh)
If only I had the nerve to email and ask for a backstage visit... but I don't and I won't.
I'm not a stalker, I swear!
