And the NATS Result Is...

I made semi-finalist!!!

That means that either my cumulative averaged score from the three judges was 90 or higher, or two of the three judges scored me at 90 or higher. I don't have my score sheets back, yet; I'll get them at my next voice lesson.

Either way, it's an improvement over last year's audition--and, as far as I was concerned, a noticeable improvement! I didn't run out of breath, and my voice sounded good and full, to me. Also, I demonstrated the ability to express romantic joy and playfulness in my first piece, immediately followed by crushing loss in the second song.

The room in which I sang was a lot smaller this year than last, with better acoustics, which helped, as I still have a small voice.

But I am still totally thrilled! :D I sang:

1. "Deh, vieni, non tardar" - W. A. Mozart, from Le Nozze di Figaro
2. "Le Couteau" - Nadia Boulanger
3. "The Lowest Trees Have Tops" - John Dowland, from lyrics by Sir Edward Dyer

I hope to improve enough to make finalist in 2010.

Current Mood: ecstaticecstatic
Current Music: "Le Couteau" - Nadia Boulanger

Rocio--Not yet, though I do have some MP3 recordings of myself singing, now, so I might be able to do a YouTube account soon. I don't have video, though.


Hey I'd love to hear some recordings of your singing. Can you e-mail some out to me? Private message me and I'll shoot you my e-mail address. Maybe we can exchange recordings and offer feedback/etc.

I'm happy for your progress!!

Hey, Lance! Good to hear from you.

I'll probably have to wait to send you the file until I come back from New Orleans, but yes, I'd love to exchange recordings with you. I warn you, though, I still sound like an amateur, so don't expect a great operatic sound just yet. (g)


yaaay, looking forward to it :D
