Please vote for my friend's piano recital. Here is her story...
Dear Facebook Friends,
I am requesting your help. A bit of background: I played the piano from when I was 5 through college but stopped cold turkey when I went to law school.
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis several years ago. I feel fine and everything is going okay. But two years ago, I started worrying that eventually I won't be able play the piano anymore because of MS. I hope I'll be able to play for...ever.
But what if one day I wake up and I can't feel my hands or my brain doesn't remember how to play? I didn't want to look back and regret not playing while I could.
I started practicing and discovered that I hadn't lost my piano chops. So I decided to focus on a goal.
I'm planning to enter the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs. While the judges will select the top competitors to go to Texas to compete, an initial online round takes place starting *today* through August 15, during which the public votes for one competitor to win automatic entry to the competition in Texas.
I have submitted a video for consideration by the public. I would appreciate it if you would click on this link and listen to my competition entry. If you enjoy my playing, I would be thrilled and grateful if you would vote for me. If you're so inclined, you can vote once a day for me for the next two weeks. The winner gets one thing -- the opportunity to compete live in Texas in 2016.
Just getting the opportunity to compete in the Cliburn Amateur will be the culmination of my goal to achieve my personal best at the piano.
Thank you for listening to me and for voting for me, if you like the way I play.
Regards, Lana Marina
