My most memorable music is the music that I've sung on stage.
It's memorable because I practised it for hours and hours, remembering every detail about the music!
I had to memorize the dynamics (piano or forte), the lyrics (in Italian), the translations, the rhythm, and also, my actions!
I sometimes had to dance while singing too! This was also a little tricky because it requires a lot of coordination.
One of my favourite places that I sang was in a small, beautiful theatre in Italy.
I was the 'main role,' the primadonna, so it was a lot of pressure, but our group of musicians was amazing and easygoing. We were performing Rossini's La Scala di Seta. It's a romantic comedy and it's absolutely hilarious.
By the end of our tour, I really knew the music completely by heart and inside out. I knew everybody's lines as well.
So, it's a very special piece of music for me, and it's the most memorable so far.
I can't wait for COVID to end so I can finally sing another role on stage again!
