It is really fun for an active choir director/accompanist to work under some OTHER vocal director/accompanist on a project.

All the stress and worry shift to the guy in charge. Pitch. Timing. Diction. Dynamics. Repeats. Attacks. They're all HIS concerns.

And all that remains is the fun: Settle into the score, toss the head back, open the gob, and SING!

Oh I thought this may be one of those postings where all you wanted to do was complain about how horrible he is. It's nice to see that you aren't a diva. =P

No complaints. He's excellent, both as director and accompanist. And can trump my dismal sight-reading skills in spades, something I noted way back during auditions.

Public Service Announcement (lest you forget) ;) : "JL will be in da house for closing night"

Chorus work IS fun! Especially after you have all the lyrics nailed and start fooling around with the entire score to the point your musical director shouts "IVE HAD IT WITH YOU CLOWNS!" Yeah... clowns... wrong play, Mr. Director!

:p

We've already started, Nance. Someone was joshing about wanting to do "Bye Bye Birdie" with this cast. And things began to unspool from there: What about a BBB/FotR crossover?

Just think of the score!!

"One Last Bris"
"If I Were A Rich Mensch"
"Oh, Sweet Ap-ple" ((sung to the tune of "Anatevka")
