I posted this on FB also but here I'll go ahead and say that I'm quite proud of my still being able to hit a high G this many years after high school and with so many intermittent long periods of No Real Singing.
Couple of rough spots but it's an incredibly difficult piece - overall we sound pretty good and I'm very proud of all my notes except that last high D :( . It makes no sense to me that it would sound so awful when my high E sounds fantastic :) and high G sounds Quite Respectable if a little reedy. Anyway, mine's the voice on top as you listen - hopefully it is blending most of the time and can only really be heard individually on my long high holds, where it is not supposed to blend as much.
The biggest difference between singing in HS and college and now is that I'm HUGELY nervous now and never was before. The nervousness tightens my throat which is why this piece went crappy on my end, I felt. I just never got opened up all the way to get on top of the notes that would have been the most fun :( Still I love the piece and I had mentioned it to a bunch of you. So here.
Sherri and I want to do it again sometime - maybe by then my throat butterflies will have dissipated. I'll post if it turns out better :)
