Why did I agree to sing in public?
(Roundsinging at Jed’s house, or even at WisCon is all well and good, but this is a *performance*. It has been thirty or so years since I sang in the high school glee club, and by the way, they took everyone. And there was that very brief moment when Heather Shaw and I performed a tiny bit of folk music at an event. One song, I think.
This is a community choir, but still. Everyone else at the rehearsal clearly actually knew what they were doing. Thank god I can sight-read, or I would’ve been in serious trouble — as it was, poor Anjali had to correct me multiple times. “Go *up*, Mary Anne. Up!”)
