I don't think people fully understand the importance of a musicians recital. It is the climax of their learning - much like a thesis is for a History/English major, the NCLUX (is that how it's spelled) for a nursing student. This is honestly a big deal, bigger than most people give credit for.
So, I'm begging you, please don't be that way. Please. It's incredibly disheartening and hurtful for the one who has prepared so much, worked so hard, and stressed so deeply.
With that in mind, I hope you understand that I am in no way trying to manipulate you into attending. I am simply asking for respect.
Okay, now for the big moment: I wanted to share my invitations with you!! Tell me what you think - there are a lot of them. The wording is identical on all of them, the only difference is the picture.
I won't lie, I hope you can make it. It's going to be a fantastic evening - a huge accomplishment. I would love to share that with you, truly.
