For anyone who's interested, the audition was at least an improvement over last year's. The room they were held in had a small stage where we were instructed to sing from. For me, I think it helped make it feel more like a performance, net result less nervous.
I had a lesson with the chorus master the next morning, and his statement was, "there were some beautiful moments." I'll take that as a positive, especially since I didn't need to be told about the couple of stinkers that occured.
Did they tell you or do you have to wait?
Hey, we all have "Stinker" moments.
Just need to keep going when that happens as if nothing happened.
I Played a service yesterday. Could not warm up as the choir was rehearsing. Had to play the gig cold. First work was baroque that I played on an Eb Trumpet Went very well. The other brass players looked at me and said how did you do that?
Sounds like your audition went well!
