[Yuko's Leg Rehabilitation Diary - 12]

When I met the conductor and the orchestra, at first I apologised for my leg condition and informed about using poles:

'I'm sorry, I move slowly, walk slowly with poles on the stage. But - the performance, the music is completely all right.'

'The music isn't slow, is it?'

An orchestra member responded humorously and we laughed. It warmed the atmosphere and our face relaxed into a smile.

Everyone was very friendly, kind and supportive. I was able to concentrate on Mozart's voice and the close cooperation with the orchestra. After the rehearsal I was happy.
