The Audition

The audition was wonderful. The choir is amazing. I feel really good today.

The chorus had us (I went with my neighbor and friend Lesley) sit through the rehearsal before the auditions. They are singing John Rutter’s “Mass of the Children” which is both beautiful and challenging.

The director is this fantastic and talented woman who referenced both March Madness and “Spinal Tap” during rehearsal. I think I have found a place that I belong.

The choir is also singing a Handel piece , something by Vaughn Williams and some other English music for their concert in the spring.

I guess I should say “we” are singing this music.

I got in.

  1. Congratulations! Both on the successful audition and for finding what seems to be such a good fit. Hooray!

  3. March Madness and Spinal Tap? Where do I sign up? Kidding…the commute would be hell and I couldn’t carry a tune if it had handles, despite starting college as a music major.
