Singing in a concert tonight

My Harmony Night group (a capella, intergenerational group with about 40 members) is singing tonight at the high school concert. I have a new dress to wear in the purple & black colors required (thanks to StitchFix) and I'm going to try to wear high heels (well, they are not that high). Hope I can manage without my orthotics for a few minutes on stage! No choreo, so maybe it will work. And hope I can still hold all those long phrases without a breath while wearing Spanx!

Dh gets off work in time to come to the concert, which will be nice.

We'll be singing all holiday songs which we know quite well, so not too much pressure, but I'm in the front row, which is always scary.

It takes courage (and talent) to sing a capella. Especially while wearing high heels and spanx! I hope you have a blast!

It must be wonderful to be able to have a talent to sing, and your group will help everyone get into the holiday spirit. Your outfit sounds lovely. Have a "Glor......i..... ous" time!

Sounds wonderful! Have a great time & good luck with the heels & spanx. Probably not a good combo for me!

I have to admit to being so envious of you! My entire musical talent consists of being able to find a station on my radio - and now with XM I am really really good at it!!! Have fun!

Christmas/holiday shows are always enjoyable. Just love a capella groups. I also sing as a cantor and in my church choir. Though, if I stand in heels for a long time, my feet get crampy. Remember to smile!

You'll be fine. We have an a capella group in our community puts on a great Christmas concert along with wonderful home-baked cookies. Enjoy your special event!

I can't do Spanx or my back brace when I sing in choir. I just wear a looser top and pray for the best.
Have fun tonight.

Love choral singing at this time of year. Hope you have a blast -- and that you survive the spanx and heels. (Not sure which would be tougher to wear......)

A capella singing takes a great deal of talent! I hope the concert went well! So glad your DH was able to attend and hope you had fun!

THIS X 1000!

I can not sing for the life of me. I could not carry a tune if it had a handle on it. I am off key and pitchy and I sing in the shower but even then I am convinced I hear dogs howling outside.
