Audition — Not Yet

I am SO sleepy! And I have no idea why. I had a long nap yes­ter­day after­noon and I think I was in bed by mid­night or so—then I slept until 10 this morning!

Did­n’t get to the audi­tion I was going to do last night because I was so sleepy and my throat is still hurt­ing. There’s about an octave miss­ing at the top of my nor­mal range, so I only have about two octaves. The bot­tom part is real­ly sol­id but sounds much rougher than usu­al. This is not a hap­py thing.

What is a real­ly hap­py thing is that the per­son run­ning the audi­tions called and said I can come next week. I’m real­ly, real­ly hop­ing that at least some of the top notes come back by then! Or they’ll think I’m an alto or some­thing. And I’m not, really—I’m a “lyric-dra­mat­ic sopra­no” accord­ing to my many-years-ago voice teacher. I’ve got the “nor­mal” range for an alto cov­ered, but it’s not where I’m nor­mal­ly most com­fort­able singing.

Last week anoth­er singer sug­gest­ed a tea called “Throat Coat.” It’s from the same com­pa­ny (Tra­di­tion­al Med­i­c­i­nals) that makes the Gyp­sy Cold Care tea we keep around. We haven’t found it quite yet, but we’re look­ing for it.
