I know I haven't posted in a bit. Things have been busy. My post-Pennsic post is halfway done, sitting in my e-mail account. And I've been to two events since (and another next week). What was I thinking when I planned this month?!

Good news though--I auditioned for the Wisconsin Chamber Choir and got in! The director seemed very impressed with my choral experience (first time that's happened; maybe experience is just very important to him). I sang "North Woods Lament" by Master Hector of the Black Height and he really liked it--even asked whether there was a choral arrangement of it, as he's considering a program of nature-related songs for a future concert. (aaron_pike, would you consider arranging it, do you think?) I also had the dreamed-of experience of being handed some music to sightread, and realizing I already knew it ("O Taste and See" by Ralph Vaughan Williams; we looked at it briefly in Mixed Chorus when I was a high school freshman, and I liked/remembered the melody, which, thankfully, is in the soprano part). He had me sing it anyway, and then handed me one of those one-line sightreading exercises to do, which was easier than "O Taste and See" would have been if I hadn't known it, I thought.

First rehearsal: Tuesday Sept. 9th. Can't wait!

So, now that you're in the WI Chamber Choir, what do your next few months look like? I keep expecting to read a "no time to post/sleep/eat" post from you one of these days...
