I am trying to rest my voice, and after rehearsal, I plopped down in front of the tv to guzzle water and just shut up. But I got bored, so then I promtly went to rite aid and bought six nail polishes.

Rosh Hashanah was intense this year, with the singing, at least. Not sure why it felt longer than last year. And it felt like such a relief to be done yesterday afternoon until I realized I had to teach, and then, oh yeah...I have a concert tomorrow.

I am excited about the concert, for sure, as it is music I am very happy singing, but I want to be at my best. So, I will continue to drink water, not talk, and maybe steam a bit.

And try to decide which nail color goes best with my concert dress.

How did it go? Rosh Hashana I mean. Beyond being long and intense, did you enjoy it?

It's pretty long for me as well since I have to sing both days from about 10:30am to 2pm with about 1/2 hour break during torah reading (which someone else does). Plus I did the evening services both nights at a different synagogue as well. It was great though. My voice held up well, thanks in large part to my ongoing voice training.

Shana Tovah! Hope you have a great year :)

Shana Tovah, Mendel! Thanks for your comments-- I appreciate them! RH went very well, and I am always so impressed with the cantor and how much vocal stamina he has!
