Well, it’s that time of year in the Midwest–not quite spring and not quite winter–but just the icky parts of each. After several really nice, really warmish days, we are back in the freezer and temps will be scrolling downward again not to rise until some time next week. We are suppose to get snow showers in the next day or so. Lovely.
This means allergies and all sorts of sore throats and assorted aliments will be plaguing my singers soon. I’m not a pessimist but a realist when it comes to that sort of thing–as sure as the sun rises in the east, singers get a “little something” at this time of year. My rehearsal plans will have to adjust and I’ll just have to roll with the punches. We think it’s going to be nice and are fooled time and time again. And it’s the same way with rehearsals at this time of year–I think I will have everyone at rehearsal and someone gets “something” and it starts.
Soon, it will be warm all the time and colds and allergies are not so prevalent with singers. I’m waiting for the warmth AND the healthy singers!
