Regretfully, I was passed over and was not cast in an opera production for this season. 😦
But I remain active, this week in particular. Tuesday evening is Gina’s first chorus performance with the WPHS chorus, and I will hustle from that concert directly to a rehearsal with the Winter Park Sunshine Jubilee barbershop chorus in preparation for a contest appearance in Jacksonville on October 7th. I haven’t competed in barbershop for a couple of years.
Wednesday evening I will miss my usual church choir rehearsal, (and I’m feeling needed there; recently I’ve been one half of the entire tenor section in that choir.) But I’ll be joining the barbershop chorus in performing that night at a retirement home in Longwood.
Thursday I am hosting an ad hoc rehearsal at our house with other singers in The Caroling Company in preparation for the coming season. I’ll need to brush up on the 30 carols I memorized last season, and learn 30 more songs in sets 4, 5 and 6. This season will start in earnest following Thanksgiving.
Friday night is the only night we could get everyone together for a Makeshift rehearsal at Seth’s house in preparation for our gig on October 6 at the University Club. We’ve got a couple new songs we want to get performance ready for that appearance.
