Rehearsal with the accompanist was so much fun!! We ran through the song a couple times and talked about tempo, etc. I forget how much fun and different it is to sing with a real live piano player.

The Conservatory sent a letter addressed to "The Parents of Susan..." with all the recital info. Ha!
