In one day I’ve heard both spectrums of talent on the singing scale…
At one end there’s Bianca Ryan (am I the last person on earth to have heard this kid? She’s enough to make every singer want to pack up their mic and never sing again…)
And at the other there is our local night school community singing class. It’s a class I taught a couple of years back and which tonight I had the pleasure of going back to mark their final assessment… I felt like Marcia, all the wrong colour of course, but I sat there behind a table with a marking sheet trying to write lots of positive stuff around the constructive critique…
It was great fun, and I was lovely… not like those other idiots.
Anyway… like I said… opposing ends of the scale… Enough Said.
Actually, there’s been a fair bit of music in my week. I sang for the first time since Jonah at a major work recital put on by a 3rd year sca student. I had such a great time. I really need an outlet for this singing gene… Singing at church is out of the question for various reasons and Schweeb, the chick who’s teaching the nightschool class and I are talking about getting a vocal ensemble together and doing a recital next year.
I think it’s a good idea.
Wanna audition? I know the choir director… she’s soft like Marcia… you’ll be a shoe-in!
I don’t know this Marcia, or anyone, really, from TV.
I was AMAZED!!!!!!!! And so were the various singers/musos I work with!
Does she think she is 30 years old? I think she has one of those pushy show mums. And no, I haven’t heard of her before.
Anyway, yes, it really does sound like you have had both ends of the spectrum. I would like to be ‘judged’ by you any day ;)
Glad to hear you are getting back into singing. Sounds like you really enjoy it.
