I hate to feel like I am flooding this group,

but I feel I should update. did my Christmas Cantatas yesterday, 3 times in 3 different churches. Mrs K, lil bit and I left house at 8am yesterday, returned home at about 730 last night. The music humbled me. we hit all 3 singings. What surprises me is how absolutely totally exhausted I still am. I was one of those "jocks" all my life, 59 years old,still weigh 215 so I am active. I cannot not remember EVER being this tired and worn out. My music has always been just doodling here with Tess, some Karaoke, and some live sets with a couple bands I know. The amount of effort it takes a singer in choir to sing 9 songs in a row, 3 times in one day, floored me and I have so much respect for professionals now. Tess went through the whole day with me as Mrs K did and slept for 20,Yes, twenty hours straight. All went great,I love this new music diversion that has kept me sober so far. Then choir director told me as I left last night,,take 2 weeks off and rest, your solo song we will start working on in January. I feel like I should go into training!! Yesterday was a great experience with a group of great singers, and my family was there all day. A great day for us, and I had the DU support behind me too!!!
Thank you

Doug/Koz

2. Singing is a lot of work, especially if you're doing it right.

I'm still recovering from two performances this weekend of the complete Messiah.

3. I am learning that music is hard

Like I said,,I tend to sing leads where I can impro as the mood hits me. I cannot even imagine doing the Messiah. 2 weeks ago I have never sang with a choir. I had to learn how to sing in a solid note as part of a group, Prolly why I am tired, and also learned a simple Cantata in about 10 days. And then got thrown out of my natural key, to sing 1st bass and "lay the foundation" as director told me. I am in full learn music mode,and I am putting my self out there, but damn,,this singing is harder on me then when I played Football, of course,I played ball 40 years ago..hmm,,,,all singers in this group have my respect. I have posted audios before.. I will try to post audio/maybe vid , from the solo song ahead of me. TY responders

7. You are not flooding it at all

In fact, your posts help me and I am sure others. And I have a sober minute or two. Please post as much/often as you want. I don't post near enough and appreciate the connection.
