When you are in the midst of auditioning, do you feel like you are in a performance or in some hybrid situation that isn't really the same as being on stage in an opera, concert or recital?
I think many of us feel the latter.
When I think back to my most successful auditions that I sang (and alas, there were not enough!!), they were the ones that felt the closest to a stage performance. Perhaps you have had that same experience.
The question of course, is how to capture that feeling so that you can unleash it in every audition and competition.
I will try to lay out some ideas over the next several days, and I would love to hear any ideas that some of you may have come up with in this regard.
