Voice Jury

I've been taking a voice class this semester at Hinds Community College with Dr. Terry Fletcher. It has been a great experience. I think that I have learned to recognize some of the things that I do wrong... or incorrectly when I sing. I have also seen that when I relax, my sound is much better than when I try to push out the sound. You'd think I would've realized that by now. Anyway, today was my voice jury, or "final exam" for the class. I sang in front of the voice faculty. I've been sick all week so they didn't make me sing all of the songs I had been working on. I only sang two songs (one of my choice and one of theirs). My choice was Puccini's "La Canzone di Doretta" and I also sang "Un moto di gioja" by Mozart. Eric went with me and videoed my performance. Here's Doretta's song... there's one really bad part in the middle. But for the most part, I think it went pretty well.
