A Good Melon and a really hard piece for me to sing in Opera for Carlow

So, this weekend the rehearsals have started to pick up.

After I auditioned for a part in the Opera for Carlow “Shelter me from the rain”, I got a part in a smaller piece in the Opera. I sing as part of  a small group of 8, 4 men and 4 women. Today, Fergus Shiel met us to begin the rehearsals of just this piece. It is extremely difficult, I don’t read music and you are expected to pick it up within a few goes of listening. Luckily, everyone else seemed to find it hard and it sounds great! The rehearsals are in the County Council Offices and we sang in the Council Chamber where official business goes on!

We are back in tomorrow to go over it again.

WE all met at the end and started speaking about the possibility of a musical society for Carlow. That really would be great. I’ve been involved with this project since September and am loving it. We all dread when it will end.

But until that day, we will go for it! So, if you want to get tickets to this project, go to http://purchase.tickets.com/buy/TicketPurchase?agency=VCCA&organ_val=33468&pid=6957107
