Omission that could not be permitted

Discovered last night that Voice Teacher had never heard of, let alone heard, The Light in the Piazza. O_o

Since the CD was in my car, this has been remedied. Curious to find out what she thinks when I go back Thursday.

She is also fond of Queen, but didn't know that Freddie Mercury had made an album with Montserrat Caballé! Needless to say, this will also be remedied as promptly as possible.

Started on Dido's lament. The idea that it is now appropriate rep for me is still messing with my head. OTOH, this flavor of English baroque? Way less boring than what they had me doing as a college coloratura. If I never hear "Hark the ech'ing air" again as long as I live, it will be too soon.

I caught a bit of Light in the Piazza on the Tonys the other year. It looked intriguing. :)

And I know Dido's Lament! Wow! Guess I did learn something from Music 101. :D

This is all VERY cool.

Can you tell there's progress? Do you feel like you're learning? Are you enjoying it?

Yes, yes, and yes.

I would love to be able to answer these questions more specifically, but I'd kinda have to teach you a whole new vocabulary first. *wry g* It's still all VERY transitional -- and Solange is continually amazed that I will just go with what she says, and get the muscles to do things that feel so strange to me, and "let me make you sing flat" (because pitch control -- i.e. that which I've been been considered exceptional at since I was, like, five -- goes buh-BYE when one is in the middle of training the muscles to do something new). *g* I keep telling her, "It's called twenty-odd years of ballet. I'm very well-trained to do what I'm told and trust that it's going somewhere, even if I can't necessarily see where."

But I'm starting to see (or rather feel and hear) where. It's quite cool, although it won't stop being weird for a LONG while yet.
