Feel Not The World's Despite. [Aug. 28th, 2008|02:10 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

Did I just go and sign up for IU choral ensemble auditions? Yes. Yes, I did.

Did I sign up for voice major choral ensemble auditions? Yes. Yes, I did.

Is this the big leagues? Yes. Yes, it is.

Did I choose, for my audition piece, possibly the most depressing piece of music in the English art song repertoire? Yes. Yes, I did.

Is my audition two hours from now? Yes. Yes, it is.

Have I gone home to practice, drink water, and change into an attractive and tasteful outfit and shoes that will say "Someone, somewhere, once thought fit to give me a music degree; please don't laugh at me"? Yes. Yes, I have.

Am I absolutely certain I know where to find the room I'm supposed to be singing in? No. No, I'm not.

Talking shoes are always sure to impress, but make sure they keep their traps shut when you're singing!

They were mercifully silent before, during, and after the audition. (And I think it went well, but we'll see.)

When will you know if you made it?

Final results will be posted by the 8th, which is the day rehearsals start.

I probably have no chance of getting into the best ensembles. For what it's worth, though, I was looking at what the University Singers (the best singers in the school; non-voice majors need not apply) are going to be singing this year, and one of the pieces they're singing is the Rachmaninoff Vespers. We did that in Grinnell Singers my freshman year. I'm not going to say that we did it as well as the IU kids, but I'm proud of us for tackling hard repertoire.

Break a leg!

Or am I too late?

I might have to go to a callback next week, so no!

(Ugh, callbacks.)

Okay, so break some legs there, then?
