I have an audition coming up next week for the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. It’s pretty nerve-racking, really. I think there are only 5 or so slots open for tenors and the chorus is huge. The consolation prize is that I might still be able to sing the Mahler even if I’m not accepted into the regular chorus. The concerts I’m hoping to sing in are:
- Stravinsky — The Nightingale and Oedipus Rex
- Ives — New England Holidays
- Shostakovich — Symphony No. 13 “Baba Yar”
- Mahler — Symphony No. 8
My audition is on the 25th — which is also when we’re going to try to finish recording the Britten.
