    The secret to performance, and don't be fooled public speaking is a performance, is practice, practice, practice. But, the absolute #1 thing you cannot do is stop. The show must go on even if you make a mistake. Most of the time the audience won't even know a mistake was made as long as you resist the urge to stop and correct yourself. Being able to keep the flow going in the midst of a mistake comes with lots of practice.

    I'm sure you will do fine. Relax, deep breathes and if all else fails, just forget about the audience; we are always our own worst critics anyway.

    Nothing worse than a lazy, unused embouchure! (my three daughters were in a championship high school marching band)

    Deadphans has already gotten some good advice. I always told my daughters to speak to the person in the back row, and under no circumstances to mumble. For what that hint is worth.

    ENJOY! And if you are allowed to videotape, let us enjoy it too!
