Well, it's a marvellous night for a moon dance,
With the stars up above in your eyes....Moon Dance: Van Morrison
We are spending a few day with my mum up on the Sunshine Coast ~ minus the sunshine! Star drove us up after her audition, & did a very nice job of it too ~ the driving, not the audition.
I think her audition piece went all right. She sang Van Morrison's Moon Dance ~ a song she had to lift about an octave for her voice but she is still cracking & disappearing all over the place & had to work very hard in the days prior to have some chance of it sounding even reasonably ok, which she says it did. Both Dimitri & Alison were auditioning. Star was rather tempted to do Figaro & take of Dimitri because it is a piece that lends itself to being taken off rather beautifully but she restrained her impulses! Apparently she got a very nice Jazz/bluesy/classical feel to it. Not sure if that means she's versatial or just all over the place! Her sight reading was a disaster!!! She couldn't pitch her voice anywhere near where she knew the notes should go although she could hear them perfectly well in her head. And people think singing is easy! How little they know!
We arrived up north a lot earlier than we were expecting to, about mid~afternoon, so squeezed in an afternoon walk around the village admiring everybody's gardens before the rain belted down in true tropical torrential downpour! And I break my fast this morning.Yay! I am looking forward to breakfast. Fruit & yoghurt ~ & coffee! How I have missed my coffee. Have a blessed weekend peeps & we'll see you on the other side.
