Why 2012! Didn’t see you there…

30 01 2012

Disclaimer – I’m not going to make brave promises about updating this more frequently, because clearly I suck at keeping those promises!

Last year I was very pleased with my uni year, and my outside of uni year. In uni, well, I:

  • Met great new friends
  • Got some excellent grades (2 A+s and nothing lower than B+)
  • Improved my singing

Outside of uni, I:

  • Got married
  • Had a honeymoon
  • Got to sing in the chorus of a gorgeous Handel’s Messiah
  • Settled down into my new city

Nearly the start of the new uni year. It’s going to be quite different: a much smaller pool of singers, and a new singing teacher being the main changes. Many of the students were 3rd year or honours, and have now graduated. My singing teacher has moved universities, and so I will be learning from a guy. I think this will be good for me, but interesting as I haven’t had a male singing teacher before.

I also have a new choir and we start rehearsals tonight! I love new choirs! Here is a link to my new choir: http://www.jubilate.org.nz/singers/

My new husband is also pretty great. Many props to him for putting up with his wife swanning around with this crazy idea of being a singer.

What else do I hope to do this year? Well, I’d like…

  • Some solos in the choir, we’ll see how that goes.
  • To get all As in my courses.
  • To do some singing competitions.
  • To get my Grade 8 singing so I can do ATCL next year.
  • Make some more new friends.
  • Visit my sister in Melbourne.
  • Get back up to Wellington a couple of times and have drinkies and catch ups with my new friends and their babies I haven’t even met yet!
  • On second thoughts, I probably shouldn’t go drinking with the babies.

And something to listen to for you. Here is Allegri’s Miserere, a truly beautiful and relaxing piece of music.
