In retrospect, it was silly of me to worry. We were being auditioned on a piece we just performed two weeks ago, so it's not like I was unfamiliar with the music. And frankly, the chorus -- all choruses, really -- is perpetually short on tenors. If I was an alto or a soprano, or perhaps even a bass, I don't know that I would have passed the audition in the first place. I know I tend to be self-deprecating at times, but I'm being serious here: tenors have it much easier than any other voice part. We're a rare breed.
There's one more concert remaining this season. On May 18, we'll perform the Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem and the Schrecker Psalm 116. (The Rheinberger Organ concerto in F Major is on the program too, but of course I won't be singing that.) Should be a good show, if you like florid German Romanticism. I was not planning to do this concert -- I had decided to go to Wisconsin to visit my sister and attend a Buffycon instead -- but the con has now been cancelled, so I'll push the Wisconsin trip to Memorial Day weekend and so the concert. Unfortunately, I'm now a week behind, because I didn't get the news about the cancellation until this morning, so I skipped last night's rehearsal. Oh well.
I'm still waiting for news on our summer concerts. The last two summers, we've done shows with the National Symphony at Wolf Trap, but I don't know if we'll be doing so again. Hope so; performing at the Filene Center is a trip. On the other hand, it might be nice to have the summer off. Time will tell.
