I'm not the next American Idol,
and I'm hardly a diva...
But I sure did have fun tonight at one of the local Sweet Adeline meetings. The three-hour practice was intense, but we went over several pieces where I started to get the hang of it...
I've always read alto, occasionally tenor, but tonight I had to set my brain for reading the bass line, but singing it an octave higher.
(That's kindof like speaking a different language and having to make a conscious effort to flip all of the consonant-sound switches in your head.)
I think it's more than obvious that I need some kind of outlet that has nothing to do with nursing. This is a possibility. Next week I'm going to a different Sweet Adeline group meeting to see how their group sounds. We'll see how it goes.
I'll just hum along if I don't know the tune.
