Rosemary Olsen, UMTA–Salt Lake Chapter, came to my chapter of UMTA and shared some great information on performing and I’ve wanted to share these quotes. I think all of them are from Madeline Buser.
“Fear is energy. If you allow it to flow through you, you transform it into fearlessnes.”
“At the moment we take the next step by expressing our hearts and minds, we transform ourselves.”
Bobby McFerrin came to the University of Utah when I was an undergrad. He said, “It’s okay to have butterflies as long as they flutter in formation.” Still working on the fluttering myself, but when performing is not about me and it’s all about the music, I am successful.
