Musical Monday

Facing my fear

Every one who performs in the musical realm has a musical piece that is dreaded from a performance perspective. For me, it is Ave Maria. Ironically, it has always been one of my favorite pieces to listen to. Just was happy I was never asked to sing the piece. Always dreaded the idea of having to perform it.

Well, it turns out that this weekend I was asked to sing this piece for a future Christmas performance. It figures. After many years of not having to sing, I have to jump in with this piece? Sort of the musical equivalent of being thrown into the deep end.

Why is it that others have more faith in my vocal abilities than I do?

Anyhow, here is an absolutely lovely rendition from Sarah Brightman. I doubt I will give as lovely as a performance as she does in this video, but at least I have about three months to prepare.

How wonderful! What kind of accompaniment will you have? Harp and strings, or just piano?

I am not sure of the accompaniment. It will probably be a church organ or piano. Will be working out the details later. This is sort of a debut performance, so obviously not the happiest that Ave Maria was picked.
