Subject: RE: Advice for a Nervous Performer
hope it went all right

personally, I find mind altering psychotropic drugs a great boon in these circumstances

seriously though, if the audience is happy for you to be there, then its alright for you to enjoy their trust. do your best for them.

a good idea is to make a plan of what you're going to perform , in what order, but be prepared to throw it away - performances have a sort of tempo. If you have something you were saving for last, but you think it would lift the mood there and then - do it! Once the mood has bee lifted, its easier to proceed.
