Great lesson today

In the midst of all the garbage, i had a great lesson with Jackson today.  "Just sing like you speak" has become my new mantra.  

Sang through six arias after the warm-up.  The best of the bunch was the Carmen.  That is what I am talking about.  It eliviates the worry when I begin the "Puis, je m'accuse de blaspheme" that I don't have the space, because the voice is sitting in the same space as if I am speaking.  A lot more ring and a lot more ease.  

The "Donna non vidi mai" was pretty danged good today, and the "Celeste Aida is'nt far off the mark.  But the Freischutz was spot on.  Spot on!!

Gonna have problems choosing what to sing on auditions, especially in Europe this coming fall....
