Well, it's off to see the world, or New York that is. I am very excited and nervous to see what tomorrow might bring. I have everything packed; I feel overprepared, and I am sure I will learn that I could not have prepared enough for this, but it is the day before and I can not do much more now. I have all the important items: phone, computer, ibuprofen, wallet, and I need to remember to pack my flight itinerary.
In case you do not know what I am doing, I am an aspiring opera singer (tenor) from Kansas. I currently am at Kansas State University trying to complete my Master's of Music in Vocal and Conducting Performance. This summer I am attending Westchester Summer Vocal Institute in New York City.
I pretty much was thrown into this Institute, without knowing too much about it. I am very excited to be around other singers, pre-professional and professional, which I have really needed this last year. But going into this, I am really trying to find out where exactly I fit in the world of opera. I am only 24, so I have quite a while to go, but was accepted to a very select Institute in New York, and I am very excited to listen to the other singers and hear what the top professionals in the opera world have to say about my voice.
I will let you know the good, the bad, and the ugly as I test the waters of the professional world in the Big Apple.
