I’ve been a chorister for almost 12 years, with regular rehearsals each week between 1-3 hours long. Over this time I’ve had a number of performance opportunities, which range between internal performances for parents to live broadcasts. Though most performances are well planned out in advance, some performances send new arrangements of sheet music on the final practice before the actual event or only inform us of important dates a short while before. On one occasion, the dance was changed an hour before the performance began! While these happenings are undesirable, I’ve learned to make the best of it and put in as much effort as possible to ensure it still goes smoothly.
