Thread Name: my first performance in thirty years
Subject: RE: my first performance in thirty years
Transition to: my first choral singing in forty-five years.

I just joined the Berkshire Lyric Chorus.
They are preparing Brahms's Ein Deutsches Requiem (German Requiem)
which is a big piece and they will need MANY voices.

Three days ago I attended the first rehearsal for the new year.
My anxiety and nerves were really intense, I surprised myself.
I did so much choral singing at university that I thought it would go easily.

The rehearsal, regardless, went well enough and
the group sounds promising.
The Brahms concert is scheduled for 4 June, it is now February.
