I had a concert on Friday night with one of the college choirs. I am also looking forward to Tuesday night's high school concert. (There's been a lot of stuff going on lately!)really fun. Concerts are always exciting. Standing in front of a choir is always both scary and exhilarating. So many things go through my head as I'm walking to the podium--the tempo, for one (haha), the things we've done right in rehearsal that I want to make sure we don't do wrong now, and the things we've done not as well that we want to nail this time. The eyes of the performers on you...it's an honor to have that kind of focus and trust from all the people in the choir. Not to mention the accompanist or anyone else who's playing an instrument with the ensemble. It's a lot of pressure, but it's so much fun. You really do get a lot out of the concert experience. Rehearsals are also fun, and intense in a different way, but when you're on the stage, with the lights and the fancy clothes and the audience, it's awesome. I can't think of a better thing to be doing.
