Welcome to The Carnegie Hall Debut, a new blog series that turns the spotlight on artists as they prepare for their Carnegie Hall first.

Join us throughout the 2010–2011 season as we follow tenor Nicholas Phan, pianist Jonathan Biss, and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato. Although they have previously performed at Carnegie Hall all of the artists are making important debuts this season. Phan, accompanied by pianist Myra Huang, makes his recital debut in Weill Recital Hall, while Biss and DiDonato each make their recital debuts on the big stage in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. Through video and written updates, all three showcase the journey and experience of making a Carnegie Hall debut.

Here, Nicholas Phan gives us an insider's glimpse into his preparation for his Weill Recital Hall debut with pianist Myra Huang on November 12.
