summary of choir

sopranos: "what do you mean i should try….soprano two?”

altos: groan in silence when sopranos still can’t get the melody after 83 tries

tenors: there are 2 of them

basses: stuck singing same note for entire song, sing a singular note 2 octaves higher, go back to same note for rest of the piece

Close

Please excuse the bad quality but I was just randomly playing around on the piano and then came up with this cover of “Really don’t care” by Demi Lovato.

This is only the chorus but let me know if I should post the full cover in better quality :)

No but:

"The girls just can’t figure it out"

Its because they expect to be treated the same as the men, and they don’t realize Simmons has lady issues because they dont expect it.

WHAT IS THE SOCIETY IN CHORUS LIKE I WANT TO GO THERE.

The 80 members of the chorus at the Metropolitan Opera have been asked to accept a roughly 16 percent pay cut.

This is absolutely a must read. Many people have seen the “average pay of a Met chorister is $200,000” and had a case of sticker shock, but looking closer that amount seems very justified: 

During busy days, singers often have two rehearsals — one at 10:30 a.m. and one from 2:45 to 4:45 p.m. — followed by a 7 p.m. call for an evening performance, which can amount to a 12-hour day. The choristers say their work rules — which the Met would like to change — discourage management from overscheduling them.

Under the rules, the base salary, which ranges from about $62,000 to $125,000 annually, based on seniority, accounts for only about half of the singers’ pay. The rest comes from extra money they receive for working more than four rehearsals a week, working more than seven and a half hours a day and changing costumes during breaks, among other things.

No one ever seems to talk about how difficult, tiring, grueling, and demanding the job of a chorister can be.
