I survived my first week back! (well, almost - one more day, but I finish at lunch!) The early mornings have been brutal, and parking has been horrendous, but other than those types of things, it has been an all-around wonderful first week. Catching up with all of my friends, especially Chorale family has been wonderful.
Tonight was our first full rehearsal for "Seussical" and boy am I pooped. They say that is a sign of a wonderful rehearsal - means that we worked hard. The music in this show is absolutely wonderful, but challenging all the same. The tenor part is extremely high, but certainly a good work out for the vocal chords - like I don't get enough of that at school, haha! These notes do come out a bit more easily since we are performing at a half-belt. Like I said though, I came home physically and vocally exhausted. My friend Jodie, brought to my attention the wonders of Organic Throat Coat tea. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about this product, as I have not been much of a hot tea drinker in the past. Boy was I wrong. This stuff is amazing! Totally soothes the voice and helps me relax after a long rehearsal.
Once again, I've written another short and random post. Try this tea though! It really does work. More about my first week later. Time for bed.
