But I'll make a valiant attempt...
|Ensemble Vocale of the Music Conservatory of Annemasse|
|Mallory singing "Nel se ben"|
On June first, Mallory and I performed in the end of year concert of the music conservatory where we both study voice.
The Ensemble Vocale did five pieces: two by Purcell (in English, FTW!) and three well-known French Renaissance works.
Mallory did her first-ever solo performance- a really lovely Italian Baroque piece by Stradella;
She did so well!!!! I'm so proud!!!!
For my solo piece, I sang one of the songs that I performed for my music exam in May. I chose "If music be the food of love" because the jury (two music specialists from Lyon) pronounced my interpretation to be "flawless"!!! And they are not easy people to please, so, it seemed like a solid idea.
In fact, it went quite well at the concert, despite the fact that I was a bit sick.
After that I don't have anything musical planned until we sing at a small medieval fair in mid-August...
