I think what you're touching on there, Joe, is the subtle distinction between singing in a supportive social environment, and performing to an audience. I make no distinction here in the work and effort required to do the singing - just to comment that the solo performer has no fallback position. He/she has to get it right.

I think that, no matter how much a musical piece is perfected in private, public performances will sharpen it and shape even more.
