I can’t believe it.
For those who may not remember, I auditioned for the Mezzo role for The Messiah the day before my Birthday (Nov. 6th). I could barely sing I was so sick. I found out tonight that despite the most horrific audition of my entire life, I got the role.
The director said that he never even considered anyone else and that even with a terrible cold, my audition was “Unbelievingly beautiful and moving” and that I sound better on my worst days than most on their best.
Wow. I don’t deserve it. I cannot believe I’m going to be up front with an orchestra again. I really, really needed this right now for reasons I can’t get in to. I feel blessed to have something to look forward to. I just hope everything works the way I need it to to be able to pull this off.
I cannot WAIT until March. I plan on kicking some baroque butt!
